Public Consultation on Aluminium in Toys

The European Commission and its Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) have launched a public consultation on the preliminary Opinion Tolerable intake of aluminium with regards to adapting the migration limits for aluminium in toys. The Commission has requested SCHEER to review the currently available data on the toxicity of aluminium, taking into account the acceptable levels established by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in 2008 and by the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) in 2011. The preliminary Opinion presents recommendation for a tolerable intake level for aluminium based on most recent data, including exposure to aluminium from sources other than toys.

Deadline: 10 September 2017
