What happens after substance evaluation?
If, after review of the available and new data, the evaluating Member State considers that the use of the substance poses a risk, it may then proceed with follow-up actions to substance evaluation.
The following options may address the concern:
- A proposal for harmonised classification and labelling for carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction, respiratory sensitiser or other effects.
- A proposal to identify the substance as a substance of very high concern (SVHC).
- A proposal to restrict the substance.
- Actions outside the scope of REACH such as a proposal for EU-wide occupational exposure limits, national measures or voluntary industry actions.
