ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, has granted their first approval for the use of a substance of very high concern (SVHC).
The approval is to Rolls Royce for the chemical bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), which can cause central nervous system damage and birth defects, for the bonding of fan blades in jet engines. ECHA are content that the procedures put in place by Rolls Royce to contain the DEHP are appropriate, and the decision will be reviewed in 7 years’ time.
There may now be further applications for authorisations made by various companuies or consortia, now that the first one has been granted and there is some information on what might constitute a successful application.
