On 23 October, the European Chemicals Agency (“ECHA”) published a draft list of 116 substances to be evaluated for health and environmental risks under REACH. The substances have been assigned to Member States, which will be responsible for evaluating them between 2013 and 2015. The list is known as the Community Rolling Action Plan, or CoRAP. It represents an expansion of the 2012 – 2014 CoRAP, which listed 90 substances for evaluation.

The draft CoRAP for 2013 – 2016 is available at the following link: http://echa.europa.eu/documents/10162/13628/draft_corap_2013-2015_en.pdf
