The proportion of banned chemicals in consumer products, most of which enter our trade from the Far East, is constantly increasing. This calls for the need to define and monitor new limit value concepts.

- Imported goods contaminated with chemicals - Occupational health and safety
- Legal basis for imported goods - Health protection
- Blindspot online trade - lack of declaration and information
- Information situation in the population
