The European Commission has issued a key document, Roadmap for SVHCs Identification and Implementation of REACH Risk Management Measures From Now to 2020, which describes a total of 440 substance risk assessments as a “worst case estimation” to which “adequate resources” will need to be dedicated.

 

Based on the document, it would appear that 55 substances per year will be risk-assessed, but the mid-term objective is to assess 80 substances by the end of 2014.
 

The document is available from NASF by contacting Jeff Hannapel at jhannapel@thepolicygroup.com.
