Danish EPA | Public consultation on potential candidates for substitution of boric acid and disodium tetraborate pentahydrate
Public consultation on alternatives to the boric substances boric acid in PT 8 and disodium tetraborate pentahydrate in PT 8, as the substances are candidates to meet the criteria for substitution under Article 10 of the Biocides Regulation (1).
ECHA has launched a public consultation on the active substances boric acid and disodium tetraborate pentahydrate. The consultation deals with the fact that the boron substances are a potential candidate for substitution, as the substances are assessed to be able to damage the ability to reproduce. Boric acid and disodium tetraborate pentahydrate are used in many industries and for many purposes, e.g. wood protection. ECHA collects information on alternatives to the mentioned boron substances. The hearing and thus the opportunity to submit information runs until 27 October 2020.
