The European Commission has directed the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to extend its proposal for restrictions on chromium (VI) substances under the REACH regulation. Initially focusing on two substances, chromium trioxide and chromic acids, the updated mandate now encompasses additional chromium (VI) substances listed in entries 16 to 22 and 28 to 31 of the REACH Authorisation List. ECHA is also tasked with evaluating other chromium (VI) substances not currently on the list, such as barium chromate, due to potential risks they pose to workers and the public. Originally scheduled for October 2024, the submission of the expanded restriction proposal has been postponed to April 2025.
