Restriction proposal for bisphenols withdrawn

The German authorities have withdrawn their proposal to restrict bisphenols that have endocrine disrupting properties to the environment with the intend to re-submit an updated proposal to ECHA once they have considered the information submitted by stakeholders during the six-month consultation and reworked the scope of the restriction.
Once resubmitted, the proposal will be subject to a new consultation and scrutiny by ECHA’s scientific committees. The timing of resubmission will be announced through ECHA’s registry of restriction intentions.
