Call for evidence on restriction proposal on PAHs in plastic and rubber granulates

The Netherlands has notified its intention to prepare a restriction proposal on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in granulates used as infill material in synthetic turf pitches. It will, in cooperation with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), assess the risks to human health associated with the use of these PAHs. Interested parties can now submit any information they have related to the PAHs in infill material to help prepare the dossier. Other information on the possible risks of using synthetic turf are also welcome. This call for evidence is open until 18 October 2017.
