fonte Aggiornamento Normativo – REACH: 10 sostanze SVHC prioritarie per l’autorizzazione 1256
ECHA ha individuato 10 sostanze SVHC come prioritarie per l’inserimento nell’allegato XIV di REACH, ovvero nell’elenco delle sostanze soggette ad autorizzazione.
Le sostanze sono tutte cancerogene o tossiche per la riproduzione e usate in applicazioni con potenziale esposizione per il lavoratore.
La decisione finale in merito all’inclusione delle sostanze nell’allegato XIV sarà presa dalla Commissione europea in collaborazione con gli Stati membri e il Parlamento europeo.
