This news update focusing on RAC and SEAC agree on restriction is brought to you by ECHA

RAC and SEAC agree on restriction. 

During the plenary meeting at the end of November to early December 2014, the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) adopted opinions on two restriction proposals – chrysotile, and cadmium and its compounds in artist paints. The Committee for Socio-economic analysis (SEAC) agreed on draft opinions on the same proposals. SEAC also adopted their final opinion on restriction proposals on cadmium and its compounds in paints and on 1-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP).

In addition, RAC agreed on an opinion of the Netherland's National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) report on 'Consumer exposure to benzene contained in natural gas' relating to a request from ECHA's Executive Director under Article 77(3).

Furthermore, Committees evaluated 19 applications for authorisation, agreeing on 43 draft opinions for individual uses.

In order to increase efficiency of the Committees' work, RAC and SEAC also agreed on a streamlined Working Procedure for developing opinions on the applications for authorisation.

Testimonial

I just wanted to take a moment to say how we value the compliance service we have received from Nexreg. In the past two years our company has been faced with many challenges related to the sales of hazardous products in the US and Canada and Nexreg has been an excellent resource to help us ensure compliance to the ever changing regulatory environment.
