Advice to companies applying for authorisation of two substances with endocrine disrupting properties

ECHA has just published a <link https: documents seac_ed_approach_opneo_npneo_en.pdf _blank>new document explaining how ECHA's Committees for Risk Assessment (RAC) and Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) evaluate applications for authorisation. The latest advice of the committees relates to applications for authorisation for substances on the Authorisation List with endocrine disrupting properties for the environment. The specific substances that the considerations apply to are octylphenol ethoxylates (OPnEO) and nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPnEO).

All the documents with advice on the evaluation from the Committees can be found on the <link https: applying-for-authorisation evaluating-applications _blank>ECHA website.
