On 27 August, the European Chemicals Agency (“ECHA”) launched a consultation on the classification of bisphenol A (“BPA”). This is a response to a proposal by France to change the current harmonized classification of BPA, as regards sexual function and fertility. Parties have until 11 October 2013 to respond to the consultation with their views on the proposal.
