All these products did already have a cleaning regime, which did not change, neither did the IDTF number. For more information about the new names, see REGULATION (EU) 2017/1017.

 

4. Modification concerning Rocks / decomposition product of rocks, of natural origin

In order to limit the amount of products concerning rocks/ decomposition products of rocks of natural origin in the IDTF, all these products will be grouped in two groups.. From now on all rocks and decomposition products of rocks of natural origin can be classified under two IDTF numbers mentioned below,  distinguished with regard to their particle size.

 

N° IDTF

Product name

Minimum cleaning

Products in this group
