Entry 08 of Annex XVII to REACH - polybrominatedbiphenyls
What is the scope of entry 8 which concerns polybromobiphenyls and polybrominatedbiphenyls? A specific CAS number (59536-65-1) is referred to in the entry, but are other polybrominated biphenyls also included in the scope of this restriction?
All polybrominated biphenyls (also referred to as polybromobiphenyls) are covered by the restriction in entry 8. The CAS number referred to in entry 8 is only an example of one of the main commercially used fire retardant products at the time of the adoption of the restriction.
