Last month we reported that the UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has recommended targeting a far lower number of substances than the EU in a potential PFAS restriction. In the US, the EPA has proposed a TSCA rule to prohibit most uses of methylene chloride. Meanwhile in Asia, China has extended the deadline to submit safety information on cosmetics ingredients. We also reported that Apple and the NGO ChemFORWARD have launched an online platform providing free access to a registry of safer cleaners and degreasers used in electronics.
