The Commission will establish four lists of CMRs in categories 1A and 1B substances to restrict in the first and second phases.
They will include substances that are potentially present in clothing and are relevant for the restriction and substances that are less likely to be present in clothing or less likely to be released, to be further assessed in second phase.
The categories will also include substances that are not present in clothing and substances that were not present in the initial list, but suggested during the public consultation, to be further assessed in second phase.
Substances that will not be considered in the first phase restriction include those only present in accessories, those bound to the matrix and not released, petroleum and coal stream derivatives and substances that might be present only as impurities at levels below detection limits.
The two phase restriction process will go through the simplified procedures outlined under the Article 68(2) of the REACH regulation, which allows the Commission to avoid lengthy procedures involved. (SH)
