ECHA Updates Research Needs for Regulating Hazardous Chemicals

Your substances


The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has updated its list of research needs to improve the regulation of hazardous chemicals. This update aims to address emerging scientific challenges and ensure the safety and sustainability of chemical substances within the European Union.

Key areas of focus include better understanding the risks associated with endocrine disruptors, nanomaterials, and substances that exhibit persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT) properties. ECHA emphasizes the importance of advancing methodologies for assessing chemical mixtures and the cumulative effects of multiple substances.

The updated research needs highlight the necessity for enhanced data collection and analysis techniques, particularly in the context of human health and environmental impact. ECHA calls for collaboration among scientific communities, industry stakeholders, and regulatory bodies to address these critical areas and support informed decision-making.

By identifying these research priorities, ECHA aims to strengthen the regulatory framework and protect public health and the environment from the adverse effects of hazardous chemicals.
