Report on the use of 1,4 Dichlorobenzene

See: 14 Time: 2014-11-11

The Council of Enterprises of the European Commission recently issued a socioeconomic assessment report on measures to reduce the risk of 1,4 dichlorobenzene, a third class of carcinogens. 1,4-dichlorobenzene (1,4-dichlorobenzene) is classified as a third class of carcinogens in the European Union (EU) because it can cause liver tumors in mice. Although this substance is not considered to be genotoxic, it has the uncertainty of causing cancer.


The EU risk assessment report concludes that the substance is present in air fresheners and toilets and that it is carcinogenic if inhaled by consumers. Therefore, there are inconsistencies in the basic objectives and realities of 1,4 dichlorobenzene in the European Union. Especially in relation to public health and higher level of consumer protection, including the protection of consumers'health, safety and economic interests.


The focus of the analysis is on consumer exposure at home, so this impact assessment specifically describes the use of air fresheners and toilet products by consumers at home. It is noteworthy that products containing 1,4 dichlorobenzene are mainly used away from home, such as public toilets. Consumers using these products are mainly in the southern and Eastern European Union countries.


With regard to our market analysis, the following results have been obtained: by early 2010, only two EU Member States had produced this substance. The report shows that more than 50% of the substance used in the production of air fresheners and toilets was imported from China and India. Sweden is currently the only EU country to limit the use of this substance, but the report indicates that the competent authorities of Member States strongly support action to limit its use throughout the EU.
