Seven NGOs, including HEAL, sent this letter working on the protection of health to the REACH Committee regarding its discussion on the restriction of PFHxA under the REACH Regulation and on the restriction on lead in ammunition for hunting, outdoor sports shooting and in fishing.
This week a EU committee will discuss and potentially vote on a large number of chemicals classification and labelling, restriction and authorisation proposals. If granted, these authorisations will allow the continued exposure of thousands of European citizens and the environment to substances of very high concern.
HEAL has joined the European Environment Bureau (EEB) and 25 environment and health NGOs to share our concerns with the REACH Committee. This letter is available online.
