Denmark's environment ministry has announced a comprehensive ban on the sale of toys and childcare articles containing phthalates from 16 April. The ban will be wider than an EU measure agreed last year, banning three types in all toys, and another three (including the phthalate most commonly used in the sector) only in those that children can put into their mouths (EED 17/01/06). Denmark’s deadline has been extended by three months to give the industry more time to comply, an environment ministry spokesman told ENDS on Wednesday. See press release.
