The European Committee for Standardization (CEN) has published EN 17137:2018 Textiles — Determination of the content of compounds based on chlorobenzenes and chlorotoluenes on November 21, 2018.
This document specifies a method of analysis for determining the content of chlorobenzenes and chlorotoluenes in textile products made of components such as outer fabric, interlining, lining, plastic slide fasteners, plastic buttons, labels, threads and appliques.
The method applies to a mass fraction of 0,1 mg/kg to 10 mg/kg per single isomer. Both higher and lower concentrations can be determined if the mass of the sample is selected accordingly or if appropriate dilutions are made during the analysis.
