- The European Commission has published its chemicals strategy for sustainability as part of the European Green Deal. ECHA welcomes the strategy and looks forward to supporting its implementation.
- ECHA’s Biocidal Products Committee (BPC) also supports a Union-wide authorisation for an insecticide containing clothianidin and pyriproxyfen.
- The substitution plans of four applications for authorisation to use a substance of very high concern will open for consultation on 21 October 2020. ECHA’s Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) will evaluate the plans and the information received during the consultation to provide scientific underpinning for the European Commission to decide whether or not to grant the authorisations.
The European Commission has clarified when companies need to update their REACH registration dossiers. The requirement to update ‘without undue delay’ is in most cases specified as three months and, in more complex cases, up to 12 months.
