European Standards have a crucial role to play in creating a single market for chemical products and supporting the up-take of new products in the European market. They are also vital for ensuring that products placed on the European market are safe and that environmental aspects are taken into account. In particular, European standards can help to increase market transparency by providing common reference methods and requirements that enable the verification of claims made about different products, for example in relation to bio-based content, environmental sustainability, safety and toxicity, etc.
