IPC Solicits Member Feedback on Environmental Regulation


Reading time ( words)

IPC is collecting member views on the ongoing European Commission public consultation on the Interface between chemical, product and waste legislation (CPW Interface). This EU initiative will have significant impacts on business through the supply chain as it looks at tracking substances of concern (which are yet to be defined), on top of ECHA’s upcoming database on SVHCs.

The consultation is based on the Commission Communication on the Interface, which was released in January 2018 as part of the Circular Economy mini-package. It aims to get stakeholders’ views on 4 issues posing obstacles to ‘the safe uptake of secondary raw materials’ and a number of related challenges: lack of information on substances of concern in products and waste, presence of substances of concern in recycled materials, difficulties in applying end-of-waste criteria as well as unclear application of EU waste classification methodologies.
