Germany and the United Kingdom finalised RMOA’s on alkanes, C14-17, chloro (cas nr: 85535-85-9). Information about those can be found here. There are suspecting CMR, ED, P and T properties and are concluding on follow-up risk management measures to go for a SHVC candidate listing and restriction.
The European Commission has now requested ECHA to prepare an Annex XV SVHC proposal for alkanes, C14-17, chloro for submission before the 8th of February 2021. Identification of substances of very high concern (SVHCs) may lead to further risk management through restriction.
To prepare for those risk management measures ECHA is requesting interested parties to submit information on uses (manufacture, import, use, volumes, exposure and environmental release), the potential for substitution (substances or techniques) and the socio-economic impacts of substitution. Information on the structure of the supply chain is also of interest. Deadline for submitting information is the 15th of December.
