The proposed restriction on the use of 1,4-dichlorobenzene in air fresheners and toilet blocks moved a step closer when the ECHA Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) gave their support to the proposal from ECHA (the European Chemicals Agency).
This will cover air fresheners and toilet blocks for both domestic and professional use. 1,4-dichlorobenzene, which is considered to be carcinogenic, will be restricted above a concentration limit of 1%. ECHA will move to implement regulation within 3 months, and a 12 month transitional period, will apply.
