Request for Internal Review of Commission implementing Decision C(2016)3549

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.
