Environmental releases now part of authorisation opinions

ECHA will start publishing the emissions of non-threshold substances, such as environmental endocrine disruptors, PBTs and vPvBs, as part of the RAC and SEAC opinions on applications for authorisation.

This policy is consistent with ECHA’s core values of transparency and efficiency, recognising the overriding public interest in the disclosure of emissions set out in the Aarhus Regulation.
