When placed on the market, detergents and surfactants for detergents shall conform with the conditions, characteristics and limits laid down in Regulation (EC) No. 648/2004 and its Annexes and, where relevant, with Regulation (EC) No. 528/2012 and with any other relevant Community legislation.

The above-mentioned Regulation introduces biodegradability requirements to ensure a high level of environmental protection from surfactants in detergents, which requires additional attention from the manufacturers.
