EU chemicals bureau reports on risk assessment

The European chemicals bureau has produced its second regular report of the year on progress made in risk assessing chemicals under the EU's existing substances programme. This follows a technical expert meeting held by the European Commission's joint research centre last month. The meeting was asked by the Commission to advise on whether five chemicals on the water framework directive's priority list should be considered hazardous (EED 11/06/01). The meeting decided that only musk xylene should be, while three others should not and more information was needed for a fifth. See ECB newsletter.
