Helsinki - The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched a public consultation on its recommendation of ten new substances, including MOCA (2,2'-dichloro-4,4'-methylenedianiline) to be included in the REACH 'authorisation list'.
The deadline for interested parties to submit comments is 19 Sept 2012.
Interested parties are invited to comment on the draft recommendation using the web forms available on ECHA's website, the association said in a 20 June news release. Comments are invited in particular on the uses that should be exempted from the authorisation requirement.
The recommendation also specifies the proposed conditions to the authorisation requirement for each selected substance. These conditions particularly include the latest application and any specific exemptions of uses from the authorisation requirement, ECHA said.
