Further information requested on uses of seven substances proposed for authorisation
ECHA is considering recommending seven new substances for the European Commission to include in the Authorisation List (Annex XIV to REACH). The substances are listed in the annex to this news release.
ECHA invites comments and further information, in particular on uses of the substances, on possible exemptions from the authorisation requirement as well as on the structure and complexity of the supply chains.
In parallel to ECHA’s consultation, the European Commission is calling for information on the possible socio-economic consequences of including these seven substances in the Authorisation List. The information received will be passed on directly to the Commission and will not be considered by ECHA.
