The Aerosol Dispensers Directive 75/324/EEC (the ADD) relates to the safety of aerosol dispensers. Commission Directive 2013/10/EU of 19 March 2013 amends the ADD to include several changes, and will be brought into effect in the UK by an amendment to the Aerosol Dispensers Regulations 2009.

The consultation is relevant to:

  • stakeholders who are involved in manufacturing, labelling, distribution and importing aerosols which fall within the scope of the amendment to the ADD
  • those involved in the enforcement of the ADD
  • consumers as it concerns the labelling of aerosols dispensers telling them of any hazards in using or storing the aerosols
