Migration of heavy metals according to the Finnish Degree (KTM) 268/1992

The Finnish National Regulation 268/1992 (CTM) applies to contact materials manufactured in Finland or imported directly from third countries which do not have harmonized EU legislation. However, although harmonized legislation exists on ceramic contact materials (Directives 84/500/EEC, 2005/31/EC), which has been put into force nationally in Finland by Regulation KTM 165/2006), this Decision applies to ceramic products with a lip line and/or intended for toddlers.
