This is the second report on the use of bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol S (BPS) and other developers in thermal paper in the EU1. Based on the European Commission’s request, ECHA surveyed manufacturers selling thermal paper in the EU on the use of bisphenol A. The purpose of the report is to monitor to what extent BPA is being replaced by BPS and other developers following the publication of the Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/2235 concerning the restriction of bisphenol A in thermal paper. The Commission decision about the restriction was published on 13 December 2016 and will enter into force on 2 January 2020.
