The European CHemical Agency (ECHA) has announced the submission of two proposals for the restriction of substances.
In particular, Italy has submitted a proposal to restrict the use of terphenyl, hydrogenated (EC 262-967-7, CAS 61788-32-7) as a substance, in mixtures and articles or parts thereof.
Meanwhile, the Netherlands has submitted a proposal to restrict N,N-dimethylacetamide (DMAC) (EC 204-826-4, CAS 127-19-5) and 1-ethylpyrrolidin-2-one (NEP) (EC 220-250-6, CAS 2687-91-4).
These proposals will now be evaluated by ECHA’s scientific committees for Risk (RAC) and Socio-Economic Analysis (SEAC) and subject to a consultation to be launched after both committees agree on the reports’ conformity.
More information can be found on the ECHAs’ Registry of restriction intentions until outcome.
