According to the Official Journal of Spain, the national standard UNE on chemical safety in shoes has been withdrawn in July 2013.

According to this standard, PCP shall not be present with more than 0.05 mg/kg in textile parts of shoes.

Based on this requirement, Spanish authorities ordered the withdrawal from the market of various shoes containing between 0.1 mg/kg and 0.21 mg/kg PCP. The concerned products are listed in the EU rapid alert system on dangerous products (RAPEX).

However, even after the withdrawal of the standard, the Spanish authorities continue to reject products containing minimum contaminations with PCP, as the last entry in the RAPEX inventory was in January 2014.

This last rejection was not based on the withdrawn national standard but on general health objections.

As a conclusion, Spanish authorities remain highly critical against shoes containing even minimum contaminations with PCP. These articles are now rejected based on general health concern rather than the national standard.
