This document is being published under the direction of the Global Silicones Council (GSC). This publication follows Version 1, which was launched in 2018 under the sponsorship of CES – Silicones Europe, and which had a scope limited to volatile cyclosiloxanes (cVMS) and the EU regulatory landscape. This document is aimed at further informing downstream users of silicone products on the measures they may take to minimize emissions of volatile methyl siloxanes (VMS), and is specifically focused on D4, D5, D6, L3, L4 and L5. In addition to promoting good product stewardship around the use of these substances, it is expected that this document will also support the silicone industry’s communication to downstream users globally.
