ClientEarth is calling on the Commission to review its decision to let three companies use DEHP in plastics recycling.

ClientEarth’s request for review says that in approving DEHP, the Commission:

  • Illegally accepted an application missing key information required by law;
  • Illegally authorised DEHP even though the companies did not prove the benefits outweighed the risks;
  • Illegally ignored proof that safer alternatives were economically and technologically feasible;
  • Violated the precautionary principle; and
  • Misused its power.
