Nine new risk management option analysis conclusions and one hazard assessment outcome received

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has received 9 new risk management option analysis conclusions and one hazard assessment outcome. Ireland has prepared a risk management option analysis (RMOA) for quinoline (EC 202-051-6), which concludes that there is no need for further action at this time. Austria has prepared an RMOA for nitrobenzene (EC 202-716-0), which concludes that inclusion in the Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) for Authorisation is the most appropriate follow-up action. Germany has prepared RMOAs for: 1,7,7-trimethyl-3-(phenylmethylene)bicyclo[2.2.1]heptan-2-one (3-Benzylidenecamphor, EC 239-139-9) (±)-1,7,7-trimethyl-3-[(4-methylphenyl)methylene]bicyclo[2.2.1]heptan-2-one (4-Methylbenzylidenecamphor, EC 253-242-6) 2-(2H-benzotriazol-2-yl)-4-(tert-butyl)-6-(sec-butyl)phenol (UV-350, EC 253-037-1) 2,4-di-tert-butyl-6-(5-chlorobenzotriazol-2-yl)phenol (UV-327, EC 223-383-8). For all four the conclusion is that inclusion in the Candidate List for Authorisation is the most appropriate follow-up action. The Netherlands has prepared three RMOAs. For dimethyltin dichloride (EC 212-039-2), the RMOA concludes that setting an Occupational Exposure Limit under EU worker protection legislation is the most appropriate regulatory risk management. For dichlorodioctylstannane (EC 222-583-2), the conclusion is that there is no need for further action at this time. For 2,4,6-trimethyl-2,4,6-tris(3,3,3-trifluoropropyl)cyclotrisiloxane (EC 219-154-7), the RMOA concludes that the most appropriate follow-up action is the adoption of a harmonised classification and labelling (CLH). Finally, Belgium has finalised the hazard assessment for PBT properties of O-(p-isocyanatobenzyl)phenyl isocyanate (EC 227-534-9). According to the authority’s assessment, the substance is not persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB). The conclusion and outcome documents are published in the Public Activities Coordination Tool (PACT). Further information is available at: PACT – RMOA and hazard assessment activities
