Registry of restriction intentions until outcome

The registry of restriction intentions until outcome lists the intentions and Annex XV restriction proposals received by ECHA.

A restriction proposal may be prepared by a Member State or by ECHA at the request of the Commission or on its own initiative for substances in the Authorisation List. It is a legal requirement for a Member State to notify ECHA of its intention to prepare a restriction dossier. The advance notice enables interested parties to plan and prepare for commenting later on.

Interested parties can follow the progress of a proposal through the restriction process, from the notification of the intention to the adoption of the final opinions by the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) and the Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC), and the adoption of the restriction by the European Commission.

Stakeholders are encouraged to submit any relevant information to the dossier submitters during the preparation of the restriction proposal and during the consultations. Information to motivate any exemptions to the scope described in the intention is particularly useful to receive in the preparatory phase of the dossier.

Details on the scope of restriction
1.Shall not be manufactured, used or placed on the market
- as substances,
- as constituents of other substances,
- in a mixture
2. Articles or any parts thereof containing one of the substances shall not be placed on the market.
Reason for restriction
-similar concern as with PFOA
-no natural sources and ubiquitous distribution in the environment
-degradation of precursor compounds to C9-C14 PFCAs
-detection in consumer products
-emissions from multiple uses at each stage of the life cycle (production, processing, use of articles, disposal)
-partially increasing concentrations in the environment and in humanserum
-alternatives are available
-C9-C20 precursor substances have already been included in the PFOA-POP proposal of the EU Commission
-authorisation not appropriate RMM (import problem)
