EU Parliament | The use of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) in the context of a non-toxic environment
On 17 February 2022, the Commission’s DG ENV published a report entitled ‘The use of PVC (poly
vinyl chloride) in the context of a non-toxic environment’. The intention is to use the report to justify
asking the European Chemicals Agency to prepare a broad REACH restriction of all PVC products
and additive substances used in the manufacture of PVC. However, the report does not show any
clear risk to the environment or health, as is required under Article 69 of the REACH Regulation to
pursue a restriction.
