Appendix VIII: Appendix to section 2-33 on N-nitrosamines and N-nitrosamine forming compounds in pacifiers

  1. Basic rules for determination of leakage of N-nitrosamines and N-nitrosamine forming substances
    1. Liquid used in leakage tests (saliva test liquid)

The liquid used in leakage test is obtained by dissolving 4.2 g sodium bicarbonate (K2CO3) and 30 mg sodium nitrite (NaNO2) in distilled water, or water of equal quality, to a total volume of 1 liter. The pH-value of the solution should be 9.

  1. Test conditions

Samples from a suitable amount of pacifiers will be incubated in the saliva test solution for 24 hours at 40 ºC (+/- 2 ºC).

  1. Criteria for the method for determination of leakage of N-nitrosamine and N-nitrosamine forming compounds.

The amount of N-nitrosamines that leak from pacifiers is determined in one part of the test solution prepared as described in part I of this section. N-nitrosamines are extracted with dichloromethane (DCM) without free nitrosamines, and quantified by gas chromatography. The amount of N-nitrosamine forming compounds that leak from pacifiers is determined in the remaining test solution, prepared as described in part I of this section. The N-nitrosamine forming compounds in solution reacts with hydrochloric acid to form nitrosamines. Nitrosamines in solution are extracted with DCM and quantified by gas chromatography.
