Workshop: PMT substances under REACH
The German Environment Agency and the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute announce the workshop "PMT and vPvM substances under REACH. Voluntary measures and regulatory options to protect the sources of drinking water". We invite chemical industry, drinking water supplier and regulatory body representatives to enter this discussion.
In alignment with REACH, UBA has proposed criteria and an assessment procedure to identify persistent, mobile, toxic and very persistent, very mobile substances that pose a hazard to the sources of drinking water. A list of substances registered under REACH that could be considered to fulfil the PMT/vPvM criteria will be made available prior to the workshop.
The workshop will focus on available tools and measures under REACH that can be used in order to minimize environmental emissions for these substance.
