The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, has agreed with the Member States Committee, the 2014-16 Community Rolling Action Plan (CoRAP) for 2014-16.

The plan details that 120 substances are due to be evaluated by Member States over the 2014-16 period, with 51 alone being evaluated this year. These substances have a suspicion that their manufacture and/or use could pose risks to human health and/or the environment. Some of the more common substances being evaluated in 2014 are:

  • silver
  • t-butyl methyl ether
  • 4 nonylphenol (branched – being evaluated by the UK as a suspected persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) substance.
