As expected, ECHA has adopted the updated Community rolling action plan (CoRAP) for 2016-2018 with 138 substances to be evaluated. According to the plan, 22 Member States will carry out substance evaluation in the coming three years for 54 newly-selected substances and 84 substances from the previous CoRAP update. The Member States have 12 months to evaluate the 39 substances specified for 2016.

The initial concerns about these substances are, in many cases, related to potential persistent, bio-accumulative and toxic (PBT) properties, suspected endocrine disruption or carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic (CMR) properties in combination with wide dispersive or consumer uses. Justification documents explain the grounds for the initial concerns for each substance.

In addition, other concerns on the substance may be identified and addressed during the evaluation. Where necessary, the evaluating Member State will prepare a draft decision for requesting further information to clarify the suspected risks.
