The Management Board of the European Chemicals Agency has selected Dr Sharon McGuinness as ECHA’s next Executive Director.
Assessing chemicals in groups has sped up authorities’ work, with assessments for 1 900 substances finalised in 2021. For around 300 of these, risk management actions could begin immediately.
The Candidate List of substances of very high concern now contains 224 entries for chemicals that can harm people or the environment. Companies are responsible for managing the risks of these chemicals and must also give their customers and consumers enough information to use them safely.
