New Developments on REACH Polymers Regulation

Date: 11 April 2022

The CARACAL subgroup on polymers published important new information on the upcoming REACH Polymers Regulation, which dramatically changes the EU Commission’s position discussed so far. CARACAL now proposes a 1-step process and to identify only Polymers Requiring Registration (PRRs), while polymer of low concern (PLC) properties shall not be used as a criteria anymore. The new approach will be subject to ongoing discussions in further meetings of the CARACAL subgroup and with stakeholders.
