UK REACH – 1,4-dioxane RMOA - Call for evidence
The UK REACH work programme for 2021/22 states that we will assess all the substances that have been submitted for identification as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) in EU REACH at the time the work programme was published (if they are not already on the UK REACH Candidate List) and consider if they are appropriate for SVHC identification in UK REACH. As a result of an initial assessment of these substances, HSE and the Environment Agency identified 4 substances requiring a regulatory management options analysis (RMOA).
Following on from this work, the UK, Welsh and Scottish Governments have asked HSE and the Environment Agency to prepare a RMOA for 1,4-dioxane (CAS 123-91-1). This RMOA will investigate the risks posed by 1,4-dioxane and recommend the best approach to protect human health and the environment from any identified risks.CONTINUE READING ON: consultations.hse.gov.uk
