Public consultation on alternatives to cyanamide in PT 3 and 18, since the drug is suspected to be endocrine disrupting.

ECHA has initiated a public consultation on the active substance cyanamide in product type 3 (veterinary hygiene disinfectant) and product type 18 (insecticide, spider and other arthropods). The consultation mentions that cyanamide is a potential candidate for substitution, as the drug is potentially endocrine disrupting. ECHA therefore collects information on alternatives to cyanamide. The hearing and thus the opportunity to submit information runs until 25 August 2019.

More information on this consultation is available through ECHA's website.
