NGOs push for an international transparency standard for hazardous chemicals in products

Dec 22, 2021

A group of NGOs is launching a campaign to establish a standard for companies to disclose hazardous chemicals in their products across the whole lifecycle.

The campaigners believe that a global minimum transparency standard (GMTS) would help policy makers and consumers achieve an equal level of access to information – and represent a step towards stricter regulation, or even complete phase out, of hazardous chemicals from products.
