Norway PoHS stands for Prohibition on Hazardous Substances in Consumer Products. It is a Norwegian consumer product regulation. Norway originally notified the World Trade Organization (WTO) about a proposed ban on 18 hazardous substances in consumer products on 8 June 2007. This ban was never officially implemented.
On 20 December 2011, Norway submitted a revised PoHS proposal to WTO. According to this revision, only Lead, PCP, PFOA and MCCP, four of the original 18 substances, will be banned. Up to date, the PoHS regulation is still at its pending stage.
PoHS covers almost all consumer products. However, PoHS does not apply to food products, cosmetics, food packaging, fertiliser, tobacco, medicine, means of transport, permanently mounted equipment for means of transport and tyres and similar accessories for means of transport.
