EU consultation on revised lead and cadmium levels: Proposed changes to levels

4180aa00-14b3-4234-b05c-0e3bf71b59b0
Following a recent research study on transfer of lead and cadmium from glazes, the EU is seeking feedback on proposed new maximum levels of lead and cadmium for ceramics to come into contact with foodstuffs, and the proposed changes are significant:
Lead
Current level: 4 mg/kg
Proposed new level: 0.01 mg/kg

Cadmium
Current level: 0.3 mg/kg
Proposed new level: 0.005 mg/kg

However, they are also considering higher limits for artisanal work, especially in combination with an indelible labelling scheme that would indicate articles with higher lead or cadmium content not for everyday use or purely ornamental; it’s proposed that these articles may need to be sold with an explanatory leaflet.

We have until November 23 to give our feedback as makers to these proposals. Please contact tobybrundin@ceramicreview.com if you’d like to be sent a copy of the proposal and to send through any responses.
