Public activities coordination tool

Public activities coordination tool

The public activities coordination tool (PACT) provides an overview of the substance-specific activities that authorities are working on under REACH and the CLP Regulation. These activities are being carried out in line with ECHA’s Integrated Regulatory Strategy.

PACT provides up-to-date information on the activities planned, ongoing or completed by ECHA and/or MSCAs for a given substance in the following areas:

  • Data generation and assessment – dossier evaluation, substance evaluation, informal hazard assessment (PBT/vPvB/ED).
  • Regulatory management option analysis (RMOA).
  • Regulatory risk management – harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) , SVHC identification, restriction.

A summary of the all the substance-specific activities can be found under ‘Details’ for each entry.

Details on the scope of restriction
Granules and mulches as infill material are characterised as mixtures. It is noted that if the concentrations of carcinogenic PAHs are as high as the generic limit for mixtures supplied to the general public defined in REACH, there is a concern. To ensure that no granules and mulches are placed on the market with such high PAH concentrations, a lower limit needs to be set.
