POP’s Persistent Organic Pollutants

The Commission adopts an agreement to protect human health and the environment against persistent organic pollutants (POPs). The agreement paves the way for the establishment of strict limits for these chemicals in waste. Existing limits have been tightened for five substances and new limits have been agreed for four new substances

Summary of the RAC and SEAC committees

The Committee adopted opinions on the harmonized classification and labelling of glyphosate and silver and the restriction of lead content in shooting and fishing ammunition. Opinion supporting the restriction of 2,4-dinitrotoluene (2,4-DNT) in articles has been completed. The Committee also adopted an opinion on the reduction of Dechlorane Plus. The consultation on the draft opinions started in June and you can submit your comments on the ECHA website.

Enforcement Forum Inspection Reports

The inspectors carried out checks on the REACH authorization requirements for substances from Annex XIV of REACH. Another project examined whether substances recovered from waste should be registered under REACH or whether they could benefit from an exemption. EU-wide inspections of biocidal products containing approved or not yet approved active substances are also ongoing until the end of the year. Reports on the results of the inspection will be published at the end of 2022.

Further reviews of the active substances in biocidal products

The ECHA Committee adopted a record number of opinions at its June meeting. They concern nine opinions on EU authorization, five on applications for active substances, including: active chlorine, calcium compounds, peracetic acid, lactic acid and IPBC. The Committee does not support the EU authorization for hydrogen peroxide in group 2. Please note that biocidal products containing approved active substances are subject to product registration under the new European procedures.

Group assessment of chemicals

ECHA published the 4th substance evaluation report in 2021. In 2021, evaluations of over 1,900 substances were finalized, most of them grouped on the basis of their structural similarity. About 25% of the substances assessed require further risk management. Companies need to proactively update their REACH registrations with up-to-date information on substances. The ECHA report also highlights the sharp increase in the number of substances requiring harmonized classification and labeling (CLH).

Another substance on the candidate list

N- (hydroxymethyl) acrylamide was added to the Candidate List as it may cause cancer or genetic defects. These substances may be included in the authorization list in the future. If a substance is on this list, its use will be prohibited unless companies apply for authorization and the European Commission allows them to continue using it.

  1. Mapping potentially harmful chemicals

In 2021. ECHA assessed a total of 1900 chemicals and categorized them based on the further regulatory needs for each substance. ECHA’s goal is to review by 2027 all registered chemicals above 1 tonne per year, assign them to the appropriate category and evaluate the further regulatory action of each substance (or group of substances).

On the ECHA website you will find the full list of substances with the assigned category, or information on whether the substance is subject to further regulatory needs, whether the evaluation has already been completed or is under development.

The results of the assessment are a key issue for entrepreneurs as they can affect:

  • inclusion of a substance in the authorization list
  • restrictions on the use of certain substances, including ED substances
  • the need to update REACH registration

  1. Summary of the March meeting of the Biocidal Products Committee

During the meeting, the committee adopted 3 opinions for active substances:

  • methylene dithiocyanate – no support for use in group 12
  • (13Z) -hexadec-13-en-11-yn-1-yl acetate – approval in group 9 supported
  • propiconazole – identified as meeting the exclusion criteria in Group 8

In addition, the committee adopted the following four positive opinions on EU authorizations:

  • Propan-1-ol – PT1
  • Propan-2-ol – PT2 and PT4
  • L – (+) lactic acid – PT2
  • Active chlorine released from sodium hypochlorite – PT2

Entrepreneurs using the substances listed in the above product groups, after their official approval, will have to apply for registration in European procedures in order to keep the products on the market.

  1. New CoRAP substance evaluation list for 2022-2024

The Community rolling plan (CoRAP) has been updated for the period 2022-2024 and is published on the website of the European Chemicals Agency. The plan provides for the evaluation of 27 substances suspected of posing a risk to human health and the environment. Of the 27 substances listed, two were reallocated and 25 substances were moved from the previous list (2021-2023) published on March 17, 2021. Registrants should check whether their dossiers for substances need to be updated with relevant new information, for example on hazard, tonnage, use and exposure, and that the registration dossier does not need to be updated.

  1. Revision of the REACH and CLP regulations

The public consultation on the amendment to the REACH regulation ended on April 15, and the legislative process has moved to the next stage. The impact assessment should be finalized and presented with the Commission proposal in Q4 2022. The revision of the REACH regulation will have a significant impact on producers, workers and users of chemicals across Europe. Some planned changes to the REACH Regulation are expected to increase costs for industry. The CLP Regulation will also be subject to targeted revision, along with other sector-specific chemicals legislation, and the adaptation of the CLP revision is planned for Q2 2022.

EU Restriction Roadmap by 2030

EU Restriction Roadmap by 2030

On the 25 April 2022, the European Commission published a “Restrictions Roadmap” as part of the EU’s Chemicals Strategy. It is in no way legally binding, but rather provides a view into future EU environmental compliance policy. The roadmap provides a list of groups of widely used chemicals of concern that will be targeted for restrictions at the European level in the coming years. This is important because this gives all stakeholders long-term visibility on planned regulatory action and thereby can facilitate existing and future substitution efforts towards safe alternatives.

The plan focuses on entire classes of chemical substances rather than regulating them individually or in small groups as is currently the case. The Restrictions Roadmap will use a group approach to regulating chemicals, in which the most harmful member of a chemical family defines legal restrictions for the whole family. If implemented as intended, thousands of chemical substances will rapidly be restricted in the EU. In total, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) has estimated the Restrictions Roadmap will lead to the restriction of roughly 5,000 to 7,000, but industry association CEFIC say that up to 12,000 substances could ultimately fall within the scope of the new proposal, which would constitute the world’s “largest ever ban of toxic chemicals”.

European Environmental Bureau ingles out 6 groups of chemicals to be restricted:

  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and its additives
  • PFAS (non-essential uses)
  • Bisphenols, including BPA
  • Flame retardants
  • Chemicals in childcare products that cause cancer, genetic mutation or harm the reproductive system (CMRs)
  • Toxic chemicals in single use nappies / diapers

The roadmap sets out priorities for the European Chemicals Agency before the revision of the REACH Regulation (estimated for 2027). According to the roadmap, the restriction process will begin within two years by between 2025 – 2027. All substances will be gone by 2030.

UPDATING REQUIREMENTS FOR CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES REGISTRATION UNDER REACH

UPDATING REQUIREMENTS FOR CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES REGISTRATION UNDER REACH

ECHA/NR/22/09 April, 12

On March 24 2022, the European Commission published amendments to Annexes VI – X of the REACH Regulation (COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2022/477).

The update of the annexes includes revised requirements for the registration of chemical substances in the European Union under REACH. The changes mainly concern:

  • determining when further in vivo and in vitro tests on the mutagenic potential of the substance are needed;
  • identification of the preferred animal species and administration routes in reproductive toxicity studies;
  • clarification of when long-term studies should be performed instead of short-term aquatic toxicity studies and terrestrial organisms studies;
  • identify the need for a degradation and bioaccumulation study.

In addition, the registration dossier for substances should include the description of nanoforms, identify crystal structures and UVCB substances, clarify information on impurities and additives, as well as analytical information.

In the second half of 2022, ECHA will publish an updated guide to registration requirements. Companies should start preparing to update their substance registration dossiers as the changes will apply in October 2022.

* Maintenance of the authorisation to place biocidal products on the market in Germany

The BAuA (Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) in Germany has published new requirements for national authorisations of biocidal products: ‘Neues Meldeverfahren für Biozidprodukte’. Based on the new requirements, biocidal products placed on the German market before 26 August 2021 must be confirmed/re-notified by 31 March 2022 if the product is to remain on the market.

New information and documents are required as part of the new notification.  Ignoring the notification obligation means that the product should not be placed on the German market.

New Guideline: https://ekotox.eu/news/biocides-germany-new-rules-on-national-notification/

* New ECHA recommendations on registration requirements in REACH Regulation

ECHA has updated its recommendations on the information to be submitted when registering chemicals to help companies improve the quality of their registration dossiers. The Agency has added further advice on how to apply the read-across approach and on the weight of evidence to be submitted. Specifically, the improvements relate to provisions on how to apply the read-across approach and the weight of evidence and how to combine both approaches, allowing animal testing to be dispensed with.

Registrants should update their REACH registration as necessary to ensure that their dossier meets the information requirements.

* Restriction of PFAS substances

 The European Chemicals Agency has put forward a proposal for an EU-wide restriction on all per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in firefighting foams. The proposal is based on information available at the time of its preparation and may be updated in the light of technological progress and new information. The consultation is due to start on 23 March 2022 and will run for a further 6 months.

In addition to the use of PFAS in firefighting foams, five European countries (the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway) are working on a draft restriction that will apply to all PFAS in other applications. They plan to submit their proposal to ECHA in January 2023.

* New cosmetic restrictions for methyl-N-methylanthranilate

On 1 February 2022, the European Commission published Commission Regulation (EU) 2022/135 imposing certain restrictions on the use of methyl-N-methylanthranilate (M-N-MA) in cosmetics.  Until now, there were no restrictions on M-N-MA, but the 49th amendment to the IFRA standards limited its use to 0.1% in several product categories due to its phototoxic effects. According to the new entry in Annex III of the EU Cosmetics Regulation, M-N-MA can be used: in leave-on products up to 0.1%; in rinse-off products up to 0.2%. Cosmetics that do not comply with the new restrictions may not be placed on the market after 21 August 2022. In addition, from 21 November 2022, non-compliant products must disappear from shop shelves.
