La legge anti-spreco per un'economia circolare (nota come legge AGEC) ha introdotto, all'articolo 13, disposizioni relative all'informazione dei consumatori sulla presenza di sostanze pericolose.
Il progetto di testo normativo mira a identificare le sostanze pericolose al fine di imporre misure di informazione dei consumatori sulla loro presenza nei prodotti che generano rifiuti.
Le sostanze pericolose sono identificate come:
- sostanze estremamente preoccupanti ai sensi del regolamento (CE) n. 1907/2006
- sostanze che presentano un livello di rischio paragonabile a quello delle sostanze estremamente preoccupanti. L'elenco di tali sostanze e il relativo aggiornamento sono stabiliti mediante decreto del ministro dell'Ambiente, previo parere dell'Agenzia nazionale per la sicurezza sanitaria dell'alimentazione, dell'ambiente e del lavoro.

Nel parere formulato il 5 ottobre 2020, l'Agenzia nazionale per la sicurezza sanitaria dell'alimentazione, dell'ambiente e del lavoro (ANSES) conferma che le sostanze estremamente preoccupanti costituiscono una base di sostanze pertinente ai fini del presente decreto e afferma che "l'esperienza acquisita nel corso dei precedenti lavori tecnici […] nel quadro delle missioni relative alla sicurezza sanitaria in termini di esposizione alle sostanze chimiche" conferma la necessità di "[integrare] tale elenco con altri meccanismi di aggiornamento, sulla base di raccomandazioni [dell'ANSES], in particolare per le sostanze che rientrano nell'elenco SVHC o che non rientrano nel quadro normativo REACH".

Il primo decreto del ministro dell'Ambiente che stabilisce un elenco di sostanze con un livello di rischio paragonabile a quello delle sostanze estremamente preoccupanti sarà notificato alla Commissione.

Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries, does not support the provisions of these French draft decrees. Orgalim fears that the decrees will be a considerable burden for industry and create more confusion and fragmentation within the EU internal market, with very limited positive effects on the health of EU citizens and the environment.

Regulation of substances should take place at European level, for EU Member States to compete on a level playing field and reap the full benefits of the Internal Market, while delivering on health and environmental factors. It is essential to the efficiency and success of the Green Deal and the new EU Circular Economy Action Plan that requirements are developed on a harmonised basis, across all EU Member States. Orgalim calls on all Member States to refer to existing European procedures and Article 57 of REACH Regulation for the definition of hazardous substances. Moreover, regarding the Substances of Very High Concern in Products (SCIP) database, Orgalim has serious concerns about the workability, proportionality and value of these national provisions. We therefore call on France to first conduct a study on the overlap with future EU legislation as well as the usefulness, feasibility, proportionality and impact of these new requirements.

Fecc acknowledges the proposed French decree on ‘TRIS Notification 2020/833/F’ which aims to provide for the possibility of extending and strengthening the information requirements established at EU level on the presence of hazardous substances in products. In this context we would like to raise the following points on behalf of the European chemical distribution sector, above all on behalf of the many SMEs we represent:
 
1. The implications of this decree to REACH regulations must be considered. According to REACH Art 33.2 [1], companies that market articles containing Candidate List substances in a concentration above 0.1 % weight by weight (SVHC) only have an obligation to inform a consumer about the content if asked. Furthermore, companies are not mandated to answer if the article does not contain above 0.1 % Candidate List substances. This decree however obligates companies to inform the presence of SVHC in products, regardless of concentration. Such an obligation requirement may result to additional administrative burdens to companies in France and is not in line with the regulatory harmonisation efforts as this obligation requirement will not be applied to other Member States.
 
2. A results-based legislation focused on proper waste management is paramount. Fecc agrees that the gap between waste and product legislation may become less predominant should regulatory harmonisation between Member States be enforced. Waste can certainly be a tangible resource for safe products when managed well. However, the aim should be a European wide initiative to prevent waste, to promote reutilisation and feasible applications and recovery processes that results to resources being reintroduced to the loop at its highest possible value. The further use of the resource will be well covered under the product legislation, particularly through REACH with its focus on precisely safe use. Additionally, ECHA already foresees waste operators are supported to improve waste separation and recycling techniques through the information available in the SCIP database. Currently, a harmonised approach between Member States interpreting the SCIP database requirements already proves to be a challenge, considering that the Directive 2018/851 on waste is still under evaluation both by ECHA and other EU and EEA states. To ensure that the EU-wide dissemination of data will be available in a harmonised way, we request that the decree first consider aligning it is on waste obligations requirements for suppliers pursuant to the SCIP notification Directive 2018/851 [2], instead of pursuing the route of proposing a separate national requirement.
 
3. National regulatory provisions must incentivise innovation, not discourage it. With the EU Green Deal being a game-changer, support from the community includes a wider part of the industry and its downstream users in order to ensure that these type of initiatives on integrating circular economy on packaging waste are well-implemented. For example, chemical distributors utilise various materials such as intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), drums and cans. In addition, the packaging material is used from recycling and recondition companies where possible. Chemical distributors promote the reusable packaging in accordance with the appropriate quality parameters and the sector finds ways to use the packaging multiple times based on the corresponding risk assessments as well as determine the cost benefit matrix to refurbish the packaging for additional use and environmental gains. However, these innovations on extending chemical and material life cycles within the supply chain must involve all Member States. This decree defeats the purpose of adhering to European guidelines that seek to facilitate the exchange of ideas and innovation strategies when it comes to waste collection and sorting.
 
Fecc acknowledges that this decree, along with the other reviews on the EU Green Deal, signals a regulatory paradigm shift for the European chemical industry. We look forward to further working with the Commission to establish a coherent regulatory framework and ensure that sustainability is not only an option, but rather the norm.

FoodDrinkEurope position on the French draft decrees on the identification of hazardous substances in waste-generating products

 

FoodDrinkEurope is the organization representing Europe’s food and drink industry, composed of 294,000 businesses and 4.7 million workers and Europe’s largest manufacturing industry. FoodDrinkEurope supports the ambitions of the European Green Deal and we are committed to working together with the EU institutions, Member States and other stakeholders in strengthening EU global leadership in sustainability.

The French authorities have recently notified the Decree on the identification of dangerous substances in waste-generating products (2020/833/F) with a view to imposing measures to inform consumers about their presence in waste-generating products. The substances are identified as substances of very high concern within the meaning of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 and substances presenting a level of concern comparable to substances of very high concern.

 

We believe it important that decisions on how to manage chemicals and the rules to identify hazardous substances in waste-generating products are agreed at the European level as it is foreseen in the REACH provisions and that is consistent with other European initiatives, i.e., the ‘Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability’ published by the European Commission on 14 October 2020. This strategy aims to encourage innovation for the development of safe and sustainable alternatives to more hazardous chemicals. It is thus paramount that this transition is science-based and harmonised at European level. Any unilateral actions by Member States should be prevented as they lead to a fragmentation of the internal market. Consequently, we observe with great concern that the French decree is not aligned with existing regulations and the envisioned ’Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability’.

 

We call for an alignment with current and future European requirements

Regarding the hazardous substances, the requirements on information to consumers set on the French Decree go beyond the REACH regulation[1] on the following points :

  • The law foresees an obligation to inform consumers of the presence of SVHC in products, whereas REACH states that information to consumers should be given on demand (article 33.2).
  • This obligation also extends to informing consumers of the presence of substances having a comparable concern to SVHC, but not listed on Candidate List. However, the text is not explicitly referring to Article 57 of REACH for identification criteria. Listing and mandatory consumer information on those substances is likely to lead to unfair competition.
  • A consultation of stakeholders is needed before the lists of hazardous substances is finalized by The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) followed by a TRIS notification before publication.
  • For substances that are not subject to harmonised mandatory traceability on European territory, a period of 18 months is necessary from the publication of the lists of substances (and their updates). This is a minimum period of time for companies to collect this information within their supply chains, which are often European or globalised, assuming that the communication is dematerialised.
  • In addition, this Decree does not mention the threshold for application of information requirements. Industry asks for a harmonisation of the obligations in France with European regulations. The reference to a concentration threshold is essential for regulatory compliance and legal security of the system, for the producer as well as for the control agency.      

We call for consideration of the following:

Communication to citizens: It is imperative that communication requirements in France remain consistent with European requirements. The ANSES List must be aligned with the requirements that will be decided soon at European level, notably within the framework of the ‘Green Deal’ and the ‘Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability’.

Criteria for identifying hazardous substances: French requirements should align with those that will decided soon at European level within the framework of ’Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability’. When communicating to consumers it would therefore be necessary to specify that the presence of hazardous substances does not represent a risk if the exposure level does not exceed health thresholds.

Substances of Very High Concern: The hazardous substances must strictly correspond to SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) of the REACH candidate list (meeting the criteria set out in article 57 and identified in accordance article 59.1 of REACH).

Concentration threshold: Information on the presence of hazardous substances should be required from the threshold provided under REACH for information on the presence of SVHC: 0,1 % m/m in an article (article 33.2 of REACH) or between 0,1% and 1% m/m in a mixture (as provided for in REACH concerning the Safety Data Sheet).

 

Business impacts: If the REACH threshold (0.1% m/m) is not retained, the list of the concerned substances could impact many products, including those in recycled food packaging. This would be contrary to the European goal to promoting higher recycled material content in food packaging in order to encourage packaging circularity.  

Lastly, the Decree can hinder the European Single Market.

 

In summary, considering the ongoing actions within the EU ‘Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability’ we believe that no national specific legislation is needed. We therefore ask the EU authorities to take  action and disapprove the French Decree by issuing a detailed opinion.
