Want to know about… how a substance is selected for regulatory risk management?
Ever wondered how your substance is selected for risk management? We have chosen two substances as examples to show you how it works.
From risk management option analysis to the Candidate List
What you can do
Harmonised classification and labelling (CLH)
The aim of the CLH screening is to identify substances on the EU market that are not currently harmonised, but for which a harmonised classification and labelling is justified. Priority is given to substances with potential carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxic for reproduction (CMR) properties, or respiratory sensitising properties and with wide dispersive uses.
ECHA has developed scenarios that analyse the self-classifications from registrants and notifiers of substances with CMR and respiratory sensitisation properties. In addition, substances that are structurally similar to these are identified, as are substances with these properties that have been identified by external bodies (e.g. non-EU authorities).
Substance of very high concern (SVHC)
The SVHC screenings focus on substances with harmonised classifications such as CMR category 1A/1B, and with PBT or endocrine disrupting properties at the level of the substance, its constituents or degradation products. Furthermore, the wide-dispersiveness of the uses is considered.
