Final report of the priority action A-003-23

The aim of the focus campaign was to check whether the legal safety requirements were being met. 72 samples from all over Austria were analysed. 26 samples were rejected (in some cases several times):

  • one sample was judged to be harmful to health (increased flame propagation speed - serious risk)
  • six further samples were rejected due to their composition (increased flame propagation speed - medium and high risk, deviating burning behaviour - medium risk, packaging film too thin, filling material accessible)
  • six samples due to labelling deficiencies (missing or inadequate warnings, missing CE marking)
  • 21 samples due to a missing or inadequate EC declaration of conformity
