The GreenScreen assessment reports for some plasticizers on TCO Certified Accepted Substance List have expired. Users of these plasticizers must contact a licensed GreenScreen Profiler to have the substances reassessed, with a benchmark score of 2, 3 or 4.
New assessments must be carried out and the assessment report sent to TCO Development before the sunset date listed on TCO Certified Accepted Substance List. Otherwise, the substance will be removed from TCO Certified Accepted Substance List and can no longer be used in certified products.
These plasticizers were assessed at a time when GreenScreen assessments were only valid for up to three years. Today, GreenScreen assessments are valid for up to five years.
If you have any questions, please contact Stephen Fuller, Senior Criteria Manager at TCO Development.
