  • New standard restricting the use of Furfural  
  • New standard prohibiting the use of 2,4-Dienals (group standard replacing standards for individual materials)
  • Eleven revised standards taking the contributions of Schiff Bases into account
  • One standard, based on the dermal sensitization QRA, with a corrected maximum use level
  • A new annex I containing much more composition data than the former one
