Restriction proposals for bisphenols and creosote available


We have published restriction proposals for:

  • 4,4′-isopropylidenediphenol (bisphenol A) as well as other bisphenols and bisphenol derivatives with endocrine-disrupting properties for the environment, prepared by Germany; and
  • creosote and related substances prepared by France.

The proposals will be evaluated by ECHA’s scientific Committees for Risk Assessment (RAC) and Socio-Economic Analysis (SEAC). Consultations will be opened after the committees agree that the proposals conform with the legal requirements for a REACH restriction proposal. The conformity check will take place during the November/December meetings of the committees.

All restrictions under REACH are decided by the European Commission together with the EU Member States.
