New draft CoRAP list for substance Evaluation under EU REACH Regulation

The draft Community Rolling Action Plan (CoRAP) for substance evaluation during 2015, 2016 and 2017 was published in October 2014. The draft document includes the following four brominated substances: 2,2′,6,6′-Tetrabromo-4,4′-isopropylidene-diphenol (oligomeric reaction products with Propylene oxide and n-butyl glycidyl ether), N,N’-ethylenebis(3,4,5,6-tetrabromophthalimide, (bis(2-ethylhexyl) tetrabromophthalate) and Tetrabromobisphenol A.

This inclusion in the draft CoRAP changes nothing for the current use of the above listed substances. The final CoRAP update will be adopted and published by the end of March 2015. From the publication of the final CoRAP update, Member States responsible for the evaluation will have one year to evaluate substances specified for 2015.

BSEF, the international organisation of the bromine chemical industry, welcomes REACH Substance Evaluation which is the new EU Risk assessment process. The objective of the evaluation is to resolve questions relating to potential impacts on human health and/or the environment during manufacturing and uses of a substance on its own or in mixtures. BSEF members are committed to generating relevant data and to perform extra testing related to their products in order to address any questions.

Our industry will be working closely with regulators throughout the evaluation process to ensure that the relevant science is shared with officials and that all questions are addressed.

If you require further information on the process or on the aforementioned brominated substances, please do not hesitate to contact us.
