Draft CWA for commenting "Determination of trace chemicals extracted from absorbent hygiene products (AHPs) using simulated urine/menses"

The aim of the workshop is to publish a test method suitable for assessing the potential presence of trace chemicals in absorbent hygiene products (AHPs).


Following the kick-off meeting of 26 June 2023, the CWA project has been updated according to the comments received. A final draft "Determination of trace chemicals extracted from AHPs using simulated urine/menses" has been developed and is now available for commenting.


A public commenting is now organised for a period of 3 months, closing on 28 October 2023. Comments can be submitted to the Workshop Secretariat Mr Bernd Boesler (Bernd.Boesler@din.de) using the commenting form.
