26 October 2017 / Germany, PFCs, REACH, Risk

German has proposed to restrict the manufacturing, use,
placing on the market and import of C9-C14 perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids
(PFCAs), their salts and related substances. It has lodged a restriction
submission with Echa.

"The conclusion of the dossier submitter’s risk
assessment is that, despite that no intentional uses were identified so far, a
restriction on a Union-wide basis is justified to reduce the release of these
substances into the environment and to prevent any future manufacturing, placing
on the market and use," the filing said. "This EU-wide measure may be
the first step for global action."
