ECHA has published their latest weekly update (12 April).
Due to changes in the structure of ECHA’s updates, we can no longer link to updates themselves. To ensure BIVDA members continue to receive this information, we have opted to provide the full ECHA notification.
To protect workers and the environment, we recommend that the European Commission adds eight substances, including lead, to the REACH Authorisation List. Once substances are added to the list, companies will need to apply for authorisation to continue using them.
The video recording and presentations from the online info session explaining the proposed REACH restriction on PFAS are now available online. A Q&A document with answers to received questions will be published soon.
Let us know what you thought about the event by replying to our short questionnaire.
Reports for the following substance groups are now available on our website:
