Commission invites interested parties to share views on the Revision of the Detergents Regulation

The Commission published today a public consultation on the Revision of the Detergents Regulation. The Commission seeks the views and experiences of all relevant parties on how to improve the current legislation in order to achieve clear, simplified and updated rules that allow for innovative products and sustainable new practices; burden reduction for manufacturers and clearer information to consumers; and an optimised protection of human health and the environment.

The consultation follows the latest Evaluation of the Detergents Regulation and the Fitness Check of the most relevant chemicals legislation (excluding REACH), which revealed a number of weaknesses and areas for further improvement.

These include overlaps with other pieces of EU chemicals legislation such as the Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and the Regulation on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. It points out unclear information to consumers, an increasingly complex regulatory framework for detergents and the need to update the legislation to adapt it to recent market developments and consumer practices.

The Detergents Regulation lays down specific rules for placing detergents on the EU market. The Revision of the Directive contributes to the EU Green Deal and its chemicals strategy for sustainability that aims to better protect the public and the environment against hazardous chemicals and encourage innovation in developing safe and sustainable alternatives. It also contributes to the EU Industrial Strategy and its 2021 Update by assessing the need to introduce digital labelling for detergents as a means of providing clearer information to consumers.

The public consultation will be open until 25 May 2022.
