- The report on actual exports and imports that took place under the Prior Informed Consent (PIC) Regulation in 2016 shows that ethylene dichloride was the most exported PIC chemical from the EU by volume. The most common use of ethylene dichloride is in the production of vinyl chloride, which is used to make polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It is also used as an intermediate for other organic chemical compounds and as a solvent.
- ECHA and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) will further enhance their cooperation, aiming also to ensure the best use of available resources by avoiding any duplication of efforts and overlapping activities.
- The Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) and the Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) agreed on proposed restrictions on diisocyanates and on lead stabilisers in PVC articles. RAC also endorsed the joint ECHA/RAC-SCOEL Task Force report on scientific methods to assess exposure to chemicals at the workplace.
