Posted on 27/10/2015 in Position Paper

The European Commission developed a plan for the evaluation of substances. This so-called ‘Roadmap for SVHC identification and implementation of REACH risk management measures from now to 2020’, agreed by the Council of Ministers end 2012, provides an EU-wide commitment for having all relevant currently known substances of very high concern (SVHCs) included in the list of substances that are candidate for authorisation; this process is implemented by ECHA. Petroleum Substances are listed in the Roadmap because of their hazard properties and high volumes.
