We reported last year that the European Commission had notified the World Trade Organisation of its intention to amend REACH Annex XVII to update the method to be used for determining Benzo(a)pyrene at a maximum level of 1 mg/kg and all 8 notified polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) at a maximum level of 10 mg/kg for the sum of these, in tyre extender oils.

The new method, EN 16143:2013, is specific to the measurement of these PAHs, whereas the previous method was not appropriate.

The full details are given in  Commission Regulation 2015/326.
