ECHA proposes 74 ‘potentially harmful’ substances for evaluation

The European Chemicals Agency has presented a draft list of 74 substances that member states should evaluate over the next three years, including many used in consumer products

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has presented a draft list of 74 substances that member states should evaluate over the next three years, including many used in consumer products.

Under ECHA’s draft community rolling action plan (CoRAP) for 2020 to 2022, national authorities will evaluate the substances for their risks to human health and the environment. 

Member states are set to examine the substance list this week before preparing a formal opinion in February 2020. It adds a further seven substances to a plan adopted in March, while two have been removed because, “based on new information or changes of circumstances, evaluation is seen as low priority or unnecessary”, ECHA says.
