European Commission Issues Roadmap for Targeting Chemicals, Metals
55 substances per year will be risk-assessed, but the mid-term objective is to assess 80 substances by the end of 2014.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
