Work in Parliament Opinion of the IMCO Committee for the ENVI Committee on the proposal for a regulation on Detergents and surfactants

Opinion: Detergents and surfactants | 24-01-2024

Detergents are a part of everyday life for all Union citizens. Given the weaknesses identified in the 2019 evaluation of the Detergents Regulation and the fact that a coherent and stable regulatory framework is essential to accelerate the green and digital transitions, the Rapporteur welcomes the Commission’s proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and the Council on detergents and surfactants, amending Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 and repealing Regulation (EC) No 648/2004.

The Rapporteur, considering the shared and exclusive competencies of the IMCO Committee, tabled amendments focusing primarily on three different areas: CE Marking, Digital Product Passport, and Digital Labelling.
The Rapporteur has drafted this Opinion about five major guiding principles: consumer protection, reduction of administrative burden/bureaucracy, simplification of requirements, transparency, and fostering innovation.
