Echa is consulting on a draft recommendation to amend the REACH authorisation list (Annex XIV) entries for the following four phthalates to include their endocrine-disrupting properties:

»bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP);

»dibutyl phthalate (DBP);

»benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP); and

»diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).


Some currently exempted uses of these may require authorisation due to the amendment, the agency says. The consultation is therefore specifically addressed to operators concerned with the uses:

»in mixtures in concentrations between 0.1 and 0.3%; and

»DEHP in food contact materials or in medical devices.


The deadline for comments is 12 March 2019.
