The proposed restriction on more than 10,000 PFAS is set to be one of the largest ever on chemical substances in the EU. To seek input ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency has launched a consultation to get information from the industry and other stakeholders. The consultation closes 25 September (see also our previous posting).
EFTTA won't deliver input at this stage. It is up to the companies affected by a possible ban on chemicals that they use to explain the Chemicals Agency (ECHA) how and why they use them, and the impact on their business if banned.
ECHA informed yesterday (20 Sept) in their weekly newsletter:
New index to help search for comments on the PFAS restriction proposal
