    Call for urgent dialogue and a rethink regarding CLP Revision – 3 key aspects that will have a major negative impact on industry and the environment

    11 European associations (including FEICA) representing producers, product formulators (downstream users), distributors and end users of chemicals, expressed their strong concerns regarding the ongoing revision of the Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP). While we acknowledge the importance of ensuring clear and concise information on product labels, we firmly believe that the impact of the changes proposed in the revised CLP regulation has been greatly underestimated in the European Commission's impact assessment, especially with regard to minimum requirements for labelling.

    ASMoR Position Paper on Green Claims Directive

    To ensure consumers can make sustainable consumption choices and contribute to a circular economy it is key that they are provided with reliable, comparable, and verifiable environmental information about goods or services they want to purchase. In this context, ASMoR, of which FEICA is a member, welcomes the goals and principles of the European Commission’s proposal for a Green Claims Directive (Directive on the substantiation and communication of explicit environmental claims) and the possibility of using internationally recognized methodologies to calculate and communicate the environmental impact of a product.

    ASMoR’s paper on the proposal for a Directive on Green Claims has been published and can be consulted here.

    The Alliance for Sustainable Management of Chemical Risk (‘ASMoR’) is an alliance of more than 30 members that share a common position on the Essential Use Concept (‘EUC’) in EU chemicals policy.

  • ASMoR on WSP REACH policy options paper.pdf

    Uploaded 20 Jun 2023

    FEICA provides input and co-signs ASMoR comments on the WSP essential use report - Policy options for REACH authorisation and restriction processes

    This is ASMoR’s latest paper which responds to WSP’s report on Supporting the Commission in developing an essential use concept, commissioned by DG Environment. See here

    ASMoR, of which FEICA is a member, acknowledges the importance of the analysis of different policy options for REACH in the WSP report and supports the objective to make restrictions and authorisations more efficient and more predictable, to enhance the level of protection of human health and the environment when the use of a substance presents an unreasonable risk. However, the alliance is convinced that the current proposed approach and broad application of the essential use concept (EUC) will ultimately result in an equally burdensome process for managing chemicals and fail to address existing challenges. As a way forward, ASMoR recommends a more targeted application of the EUC in combination with derogations for safe uses as workable reformed risk management process.

    The Alliance for Sustainable Management of Chemical Risk (‘ASMoR’) is an alliance of more than 30 members that share a common position on the Essential Use Concept (‘EUC’) in EU chemicals policy.

  • Adhesives in the context of paper and board recycling – state of play.pdf

    Uploaded 19 Jun 2023

    Adhesives in the context of paper and board recycling - state of play

    Fibre-based products, in particular paper and board, play an important part in packaging and printing industries. In addition, their biobased origin and high recycling rates provide tangible sustainability benefits. Many fibre-based product designs, in particular in the area of packaging, would not be possible without adhesives, which are used in, for example, corrugation, bag and box making and labelling.

    In this paper, the place of adhesives in paper recycling is outlined. Then, existing design guidelines for fibre-based products are viewed with regards to adhesives and the treatment of adhesives in test methods and assessment schemes is considered. FEICA’s recommendations on the way to approach adhesives in paper and fibre-based recycling are also presented.
