ECHA Selects 236 Substances to be Evaluated for Possible Regulatory Action

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has selected 236 substances to be evaluated by Member State competent authorities in its annual screening exercise.

This annual exercise is part of a screening approach to identify substances that pose a risk to human health and the environment. As part of the screening process, substances may be added to:

  • A list of substances that are subject to compliance checks
  • Registry of Intentions
  • Draft Community Rolling Action Plan
  • Public Activities Coordination Tool

Substances may be added to these groups based on categories available in registration dossiers, read-across arguments, structural similarity or other categories, such as those used in other regulatory programs. Substances may also be grouped for further analysis, the outcomes of which will determine the extent of future courses of action. If companies have registered any of the substances on the shortlist, the ECHA encourages them to update their dossiers as soon as possible to help Member State authorities determine if regulatory action is required.
