ERJ staff report (DS)
Helsinki, Finland -- EChA has today submitted the first draft Community rolling action plan (CoRAP) to the Member States. The draft plan contains 91 substances -- including Resorcinol -- that are proposed for review by the Member States under the substance evaluation process of the REACH Regulation. These substances are divided for evaluation during the years 2012, 2013 and 2014. EChA publishes also a public version of the draft plan including the non-confidential substance names, CAS- and EC-numbers, and the tentative year of evaluation.
In many cases, the initial concerns are related to potential PBT 1-properties, suspected endocrine disruption, or carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic properties in combination with wide dispersive or consumer use(s). In general, the uses of these substances cover various areas and are not focusing on any particular industrial, professional or consumer uses.
The list includes general industrial chemicals such as methanol, toluene, and n-hexane and silver as well as more specialised materials such as resorcinol and formaldehyde.
