ECHA recommends restriction on flame retardants in flexible polyurathane (PUR) foams

Chemical Watch, 12.04.18

ECHA calls for a restriction proposal of TCEP, TCPP and TDCP flame retardants used in PUR foams in childcare articles and residential upholstered furniture. 

The European Furniture Industries Confederation (EFIC) calls for a EU-wide approach to this issue as well as for a wider restriction’s scope, which would include the public furniture contract market.
