The EU started the process of reviewing its Mercury Regulation. While the use of mercury is restricted in most products in the EU, in some products its use still occurs. This initiative focuses on further restricting the remaining uses of mercury in the EU, especially in dental amalgam and certain other mercury-added products, such as lamps and measuring devices, and their international trade. This contributes to the zero pollution ambition for a toxic-free environment, as announced in the European Green Deal.
Feedback was sent to the Commission from stakeholders, including comments from the EEB.
