This document sets out requirements for bio-based surfactants in terms of properties, limits, application classes and test methods. It establishes the characteristics and details for assessment of bio-based surfactants as to whether they:
—   are fit for purpose in terms of performance related properties;
—   comply with the requirements regarding the health, safety and environment which apply to general surfactants;
—   are derived from a certain minimum percentage of biomass; and
—   comply with at least similar sustainability criteria as comparable (non-bio-based) surfactants.
The criteria of the regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) [11] also apply to bio-based surfactants.
NOTE   EN 16575 defines the term “bio-based” as derived from biomass and clarifies that “bio-based” does not imply “biodegradable”. In addition, “biodegradable” does not necessarily imply the use of “bio-based” material.

The proposed standard aims at describing a method to analyze 57 chemically defined suspected allergens (some of them existing under several isomeric forms or as mixtures) in ready to inject fragrance and raw material samples according to the SCCS opinion. (SCCS/1459/11).
This new analytical method uses gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MS) to detect and to quantify the 57 fragrance substances and their relevant isomers at a concentration higher than 0.0002% (2 mg/kg) in ready to inject fragrance and raw material samples. Making this method available will allow the screening of (complex) ready to inject fragrance and raw material samples to be undertaken for the presence of any of those chemically defined suspected allergens. It will therefore be a basis for the calculation of adequate information to the cosmetics industry in order to provide adequate consumer information. The present analytical method uses GC-MS by combination of two GC columns of different polarity with a dedicated methodology for quantitation.

This document specifies an in vitro procedure to characterize the UVA protection of sunscreen products. Specifications are given to enable determination of the spectral absorbance characteristics of UVA protection in a reproducible manner. In order to determine relevant UVA protection parameters, the method has been created to provide an UV spectral absorbance curve from which a number of calculations and evaluations can be undertaken. These include calculation of the Ultraviolet-A protection factor (UVA-PF) [correlating with in vivo UVA-PF from the persistent pigment darkening (PPD) testing procedure], critical wavelength and UVA absorbance proportionality. These computations are optional and relate to local sunscreen product labelling requirements. This method relies on the use of static in vivo SPF results for scaling the UV absorbance curve. This document is not applicable to powder products such as pressed powder and loose powder products.

c) Clause 3 - Some definitions were deleted, some were added.
d) Subclause 7.1 - Some markings were deleted, some were added.
e) Subclause 7.6 - Symbols were added for “read operator’s manual”, “operator’s manual; operating instructions” including coloring are placed in visible location; maximum allowable pressure markings following X MPa.
f) Subclause 19.11.4 was modified.
g) Subclause 21.1 was modified.
h) Subclause 21.2 was modified.
i) Subclause 22.102 was modified.
j) Subclause 22.104.1.1 was modified.
k) Subclause 22.104.5 was modified.
l) Subclause 22.104.10 was modified.
m) Subclause 22.104.11 was modified.
n) Subclause 22.105.1 was modified.
o) Subclause 22.107 was modified.
p) Subclause 30.2 was moved to Clause 29.
q) Annex AA was deleted and replaced with Annex AA.
r) Annex BB was deleted and replaced with former IEC 60335-2-104 Annex CC (normative) Compatibility requirements following addition to Annex BB.
s) Annex DD was deleted and replaced with Annex CC.
t) New Annex DD was added.
u) New Annex EE was added.
This part 2 is to be used in conjunction with the fifth edition of IEC 60335-1:2010 and its amendments.

This European Standard specifies a test method and the minimum requirements for bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectant products intended to be used for treatment in aqueous systems against Legionella pneumophila that form a homogeneous, physically stable preparation when diluted with buffered ferrous hard water or hard water. Whenever Legionella pneumophila poses a risk to human health, this method is suitable for water used in cooling towers and water for general purposes, like spas, pools, showers and other uses. The method is not suitable for electro-chemical disinfection.
The European Standard applies to products used to treat water in order to kill Legionella pneumophila.
NOTE 1   The method described is intended to determine the activity of commercial formulations or active substances under the conditions in which they are used.
NOTE 2   This method corresponds to a phase 2 step 1 test .
NOTE 3   This method does not take into account the fact that Legionella pneumophila is often found in cells of amoebae and/or biofilms and that thereby a product’s activity against the bacteria may be reduced.
EN 14885 specifies in detail the relationship of the various tests to one another and to "use recommendation".
