EU opens consultation on candidate listing of lead metal under REACH
A dossier by the Swedish Chemicals Agency (KemI) proposing the identification of lead metal as a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) has been published on the ECHA website, triggering the start of a 45-day public consultation. The Lead Reach Consortium has published a position paper and ILA will be making a full response on behalf of both within the 45 day consultation period. END
