The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published the Community rolling action plan (CoRAP) update for years 2014-2016, which lists 120 substances for evaluation by the Member State Competent Authorities under the substance evaluation process of the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (Articles 44 to 48).
The substances are distributed for evaluation in years 2014, 2015 and 2016 between 21 Member States. 51 substances are being evaluated in 2014 by 20 Member States. In 2015 and 2016, the aim is to evaluate at least 48 and 21 substances, respectively.
In March 2015 this plan will be updated again and changes may be introduced for the substances in years 2015 and 2016 (Article 44(2) of the REACH Regulation). New substances may also be added for those years.
