Petroleum products

01 Oct 2003

The field of ‘Petroleum Products’ in CONCAWE deals with product stewardship and chemical control legislative issues relating to the production, marketing and use of petroleum substances. Since its early days, CONCAWE has provided guidance to its member companies for compliance with emerging and evolving EU legislation related to the control of chemicals. At present, the key legislation affecting the control of chemicals consists of the Dangerous Substances Directive (issued in 1967), the Existing Substances Regulation (issued in 1993), and the Dangerous Preparations Directive (revised in 1999).
