Dear All,

The packaging directive sets the concentration levels of heavy metals in
packaging at 100ppm but there is a derogation for plastic crates and
pallets that is supposed to expire in March 2009. The industry is asking
the Commission to renew this exemption and the consultancy BIO
intelligence is asking us whether we have any comments.

Are you aware of any:
USE issue, contamination to the food for instance
PRODUCTION and RECYCLING Issues (leaching for instance) related to these
plastic crates and pallets?

If you would like to provide information, even a small response, PLEASE
send it to me before Wednesday 17 September at the latest... Thanks a lot.

Kind regards,

Nathalie

Dear Ms. Cliquot,



Following our conversation on the phone, I am hereby sending you a list
of issues regarding our study on plastic crates and pallets, on which
your expert members may be able to contribute.



It is understandable that you need some time to consult your members. As
discussed, we expect to have your eventual contributions in the
beginning of next week, let us say on Wednesday 17/8 the latest.



Thank you in advance for your understanding and help on this issue.



Best regards,

Lea Turunen
