Protects your passport from accidental spills, wear, etc. Inner passport pocket.
Made of polyurethane, which contains plasticizer bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) in small concentrations.
DEHP is a substance classed as toxic to reproduction. This means that long-term exposure to the substance can affect human reproductive and fertility capabilities. Since skin contact with the passport cover is usually limited, the exposure to DEHP whilst using the case is relatively low. We are working with our supplier to replace this substance.
A product should be considered safe for both health and the environment. We at Clas Ohlson work hard at eliminating potentially harmful chemicals in products and substituting them with safe alternatives. Our requirements for products that can be exposed to the skin and contain PAH and phthalates are more stringent than those of current legislation.
REACH, the EU chemicals legislation, supports our work in phasing out dangerous chemicals. An SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) substance is one with documented health risks. We are continually working to ensure that any SVHC substances found on the candidate list of substances of high concern are eliminated from our products as much as possible. If it is not possible to exclude the substances straight away, we are phasing them out. If any SVHC substances are found in our products, this information will be found on our packaging and/or webpage.
