ECHA has published new information on the risks and hazards of some chemical substances on its website. The substances concerned are “handovers” from the previous legislation (Regulation (EEC) No. 793/93) which were prioritised due to being produced in large quantities or having possible persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic properties.
Where relevant, the evaluating EU Member State has given a recommendation on how to reduce the risk. This information is particularly useful for companies who are planning to register these substances and for Member States or the European Commission who may have concerns about them.
The new web page also contains a list of the EU Member State Competent Authorities which ECHA has nominated to take charge of evaluating new data still expected from industry according to Regulation (EC) No 465/2008. The results of the evaluations will be uploaded later.
