Act now to stay on the EU market after the UK’s withdrawal
All companies placing chemical substances onto the markets of the European Union and European Economic Area need to prepare for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU. New instructions are now available on ECHA’s website.
Clearer requirements for applications for authorisation
Updated formats for applications for authorisation and review reports are now available on ECHA’s website. The formats are compatible with the updated opinion format of ECHA’s scientific committees, and instruct applicants on how to present their analysis of alternatives and socio-economic analysis when applying for continuing the use of a substance of very high concern. They will become mandatory for applications and review reports from 1 June 2019.
ECHA proposes to restrict intentionally added microplastics
ECHA has submitted a restriction proposal for microplastic particles that are intentionally added to mixtures used by consumers or professionals. If adopted, the restriction could reduce the amount of microplastics released to the environment in the EU by about 400 thousand tonnes over 20 years.
