cation may be considered according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (Classi fi cation, Labeling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation). In this case, no substances or preparations may be added to the raw materials that are assigned, or may be assigned at the time of application, with any of the following hazard statements (or combinations thereof): H351, H350, H340, H350i, H400, H410, 178 L.

H411, H412, H413, H360F, H360D, H361f, H361d H360FD, H361fd, H360Fd, H360Df, or H341. An applicant to the EU Ecolabel must either provide a declaration that fi nishes have not been used, or indicate which fi nishes have been used and provide docu- mentation (e.g. safety data sheets) and/or declarations indicating that those fi nishes comply with this criterion. Regarding biocidal or biostatic products, chlorophenols (their salts and esters), Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB), and organotin compounds cannot be used during transportation or storage of products and semi-manufactured products. Only fl ame retardants that are chemically bound into the polymer fi ber or onto the fi ber surface (reactive fl ame retardants) may be used in the product. If the fl ame retardants used have any of the R-phrases listed above, these reactive fl ame retar- dants should, on application, change their chemical nature to no longer warrant classi fi cation under any of these R-phrases (less than 0.1 % of the fl ame retardant on the treated yarn or fabric may remain in the form as before application). Flame retardants that are only physically mixed into the polymer fi ber or into a textile coating are excluded (additive fl ame retardants). Regarding anti-felting fi nishes, halogenated substances or preparations shall only be applied to wool slivers and loose scoured wool. Formaldehyde is traditionally present in crosslinking agents used in textile fi n- ishing. The amount of free and partly hydrolysable formaldehyde in the fi nal fabric shall not exceed 20 ppm (or mg/kg) in products for babies and young children under 3 years old, 30 ppm for products that come into direct contact with the skin, and 75 ppm for all other products. In terms of water and energy use, although there are no restrictions, the applicant shall provide data on water and energy use for the manufacturing sites involved in wet processing. (c) Fitness for use Although the EU Ecolabel is not a quality label, minimum quality performance levels are established in terms of dimensional changes during washing and drying, color fastness to perspiration (acid and alkaline), color fastness to rubbing (dry and wet), and color fastness to light. The following information should appear on the Ecolabel: encouraging the use of sustainable fi bers, ” “ durable and high quality, and hazardous substances restricted. The proposed revision of the EU Ecolabel criteria for textiles gives further indications concerning the substances that are used in textile fi nishing and which may appear on the fi nal product, taking into account the listed hazard classes or risk phrases in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (the CLP Regulation mentioned previously). The textile hazard class restrictions will be split into textile

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
