ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) supports the proposal to restrict polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in clay targets for shooting. The restriction aims to prevent further environmental emissions of these toxic and very persistent substances that build up in humans and animals. Many PAHs are also known to cause cancer.
ECHA is looking for comments on nine proposals to identify new substances of very high concern. Give comments by 17 October 2022.
The Management Board of the European Chemicals Agency has selected Dr Sharon McGuinness as ECHA’s next Executive Director.
