Swedish chemicals agency Kemi has announced it wants more action on the use chemicals in consumer goods in Europe. Its newly published strategy follows on from its Action plan for a toxin free everyday environment (commissioned by the Swedish government and published last March) and calls for more information to be made available on substances used in consumer goods, and for manufacturers to substitute harmful ingredients. Kemi says that the way products are traded and imported these days means that it is harder to track production processes and ensure safety. It plans to increase its research into the risks posed by chemicals in consumer goods and find ways that the EU could enforce higher standards of chemical safety in this area. The first product fields to be targeted will be building products, furnishings, electronic goods, clothing and toys. Summary of Kemi Action plan in English
