The Ecological Council is among 31 NGOs who have signed a letter for all the members of the EUs REACH Committee. The letter targets three areas of regulation:
1) The regulation of D4 and D5 must be stricter in order to reach the wanted environmental effect
2) Support of the Commission’s proposal to identify four phthalates (DEHP, DBP, BBP and DIBP) as substances of very high concern, according to Article 57(f) of REACH, due to their endocrine disrupting properties and consequent implications for human health.
3) The EU Commission has ignored expert advice on the regulation of nano materials since 2012, which has led to a lack of regulation.
