* C&A commits to eliminate the intentional use of APEO from all C&A products latest by 2020. All C&A products have to comply latest by 1st season 2017 with the APEO limit value of 100 mg/kg, or the end of the grace period for C&A products to be fully compliant is season 1 (SN1) 2017.

The U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) identified suitable safer alternative surfactants /detergents to substitute APEO in the Program Design for the Environment (DfE). The related list is available on the safer chemical ingredients list (SCIL) at the following link:
