The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, has agreed with the Member States Committee, the 2015-17 Community Rolling Action Plan (CoRAP).

The plan details that 134 substances are due to be evaluated by Member States over the 2015-17 period, with 48 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 across various Member States in 2015 are:

  • aluminium chloride
  • phenol
  • octamethyltrisiloxane, decamethyltetrasiloxane  and dodecamethylpenta- siloxane , all suspected by the UK authorities of being persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) substances.
