European Focus on PMT and vPvM Substances Increases – Update from Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On May 9, 2020, the European Commission (EC) began a public consultation on a roadmap for “Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability.”  The roadmap states that the regulatory framework on chemicals needs to be strengthened to increase further the level of protection of human health and the environment — in particular from exposure to endocrine disruptors; combinations of chemicals; hazardous chemicals in products, including in imports; and very persistent chemicals.  The regulatory framework also needs “to rapidly reflect scientific evidence on the risk posed by endocrine disruptors, hazardous chemicals in products including imports, combination effects of different chemicals and very persistent chemicals.” For more information, please read the full memorandum.
