ECHA starts work on persistent organic pollutants

Under the revised POPs Regulation, ECHA has new tasks to support controlling some of the most hazardous pollutants.

The Agency will support the identification of new POPs substances. It will also act as an interface for reporting duties on implementing the regulation. Other tasks include promoting an exchange of information on POPs between various EU actors and third countries. In 2020, ECHA will integrate data on POPs to its chemicals database.

Further information can be found in ECHA’s press release.
