ECHA provides advance notice on substances being considered for risk management

From now on, ECHA's website gives advance notice on the substances  being considered by authorities for regulatory risk management, together with the  routes that are being considered. The routes are for example harmonised classification and labelling, authorisation or restriction. The information is useful for many stakeholders, including manufacturers and importers of chemicals, downstream users and civil society.
