Registry of restriction intentions until outcome

The registry of restriction intentions until outcome lists the intentions and Annex XV restriction proposals received by ECHA.

A restriction proposal may be prepared by a Member State or by ECHA at the request of the Commission or on its own initiative for substances in the Authorisation List. It is a legal requirement for a Member State to notify ECHA of its intention to prepare a restriction dossier. The advance notice enables interested parties to plan and prepare for commenting later on.

Interested parties can follow the progress of a proposal through the restriction process, from the notification of the intention to the adoption of the final opinions by the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) and the Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC), and the adoption of the restriction by the European Commission.

Stakeholders are encouraged to submit any relevant information to the dossier submitters during the preparation of the restriction proposal and during the consultations. Information to motivate any exemptions to the scope described in the intention is particularly useful to receive in the preparatory phase of the dossier.

Further substance information
Details on the scope of restriction
Restriction on the placing on the market or use of 2,4 dinitrotoluene in articles for supply to the general public or to professional workers in concentrations greater than 0.1 % weight by weight.
Reason for restriction
2,4-dinitrotoluene (2,4-DNT) is classified under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) as a carcinogen category 1B, H350 (may cause cancer) and was therefore included in the candidate list for authorisation (13/01/2010; ED/68/2009 ) and into Annex XIV of REACH (Commission Regulation (EU) No 143/2011) on the basis of Art 57(a) of REACH with a sunset date of 21/08/2015. Following an assessment of the available evidence in accordance with Article 69(2) of the REACH Regulation, ECHA considers that there are uses of 2,4-dinitrotoluene in articles that pose a risk that is not adequately controlled. This Annex XV restriction proposal addresses those risks in articles not already regulated.
