New article about plans to introduce a ban against four dangerous phthalates

The Danish Minister for the Environment wants to exploit the cocktail-effect and ban the total effect of four phthalates at once.

In the most recent issue of International Law Office (ILO) Partner Søren Stenderup Jensen has written an article about a planned ban against the four most dangerous phthalates DEHP, DBP, DIBP and BBP. Surveys show that the four phthalates can jointly affect the hormone system and, for example, harm the reproductive system. Minister for the Environment Karen Ellemann therefore wants to introduce a ban against the phthalates and if such a ban becomes a reality, it will be the first time that a ban is based on the cocktail-effect.
