REACH: Industry Position on the Commission Roadmap on Substances of Very High Concern

The automotive industry sees the need to have a roadmap on Substances of Very High Concern.

This would be a first step towards a harmonised approach that is used by Member States and the Commission to identify relevant potential substances for the Candidate List. A transparent and predictable process is needed to avoid issues such as supply chain disruption, and would be consistent with one of the primary aims of REACH and of authorisation, which is to ensure the efficient functioning of the internal market.
