ANNEX II
Annex III is amended as follows:
1. point 1 is replaced by the following:
`1. This Annex contains the list of:
(a) substances which are incorporated into plastics to achieve a technical effect in the finished product, including
"polymeric additives". They are intended to be present in the finished articles;
(b) substances used to provide a suitable medium in which polymerisation occurs.
For the purposes of this Annex, the substances referred to in (a) and (b) are hereinafter referred to as "additives".
For the purpose of this Annex, "Polymeric additives" means any polymer and/or prepolymer and/or oligomer
which may be added to plastics in order to achieve a technical effect but which cannot be used in absence of
other polymers as the main structural component of finished materials and articles. It includes also substances
which may be added to the medium in which polymerisation occurs.
The list does not include:
(a) the substances which directly influence the formation of polymers;
(b) colorants;
(c) solvents.';
