The European and Swedish Chemicals Agencies, respectively ECHA and KEMI, have both recently inspected hundreds of articles. Interestingly, ECHA has reported restricted phthalates in 20% of inspected toys and asbestos fibres in 14% of products. On its end, KEMI has found various non-compliant electrical and electronic products. According to the Swedish study, the main reasons for these violations are high levels or lead in soldering and short-chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCP) in soft plastics.
