Restriction dossier for medium-chain chlorinated paraffins (MCCP) submitted

ECHA submitted a proposal on 15 July 2022 to restrict the manufacture, use and placing on the market of substances, mixtures and articles containing medium-chain chlorinated paraffins (MCCP) and other substances that contain chloroalkanes with carbon chain lengths ranging from C14 to C17.

The proposal will now be evaluated by ECHA’s scientific committees for risk assessment (RAC) and socio-economic analysis (SEAC) and will be later subject to a consultation.
