RAC supports the restriction of PAHs in clay targets for shootin

The ECHA Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) supported the proposal to restrict PAHs in clay targets for shooting.

The restriction aims to prevent further environmental emissions of these toxic and very persistent substances that build up in humans and animals. Many PAHs are also known to cause cancer. The proposed restriction introduces a 0.005 % weight by weight concentration limit for the sum of 18 indicator PAHs after a one-year transition with a 1 % concentration limit.
