Products made from organohalogen compounds should be avoided due to numerous ecological disadvantages during the production cycle as well as for disposal and recycling. A position paper by the City of Vienna on this issue (particularly regarding PVC) is available at http://www.oekokauf.wien.at (in German).
The maximum admissible content of organohalogen compounds in coatings is 1% by weight. If lower concentrations are required in the safety data sheet due to statutory regulations, these concentrations are deemed to be the limit.
