N,N-dimethylformamide; Products of the chemical industry (ICS 71.100)

Draft Commission Regulation amending Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) as regards N,N-dimethylformamide (4 page(s), in English; 2 page(s), in English)

This draft Regulation relates to a new entry of Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

The draft Commission Regulation proposes a restriction for placing N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) on the market in concentrations higher than 0.3%, unless the registration dossiers and the safety data sheet are updated with the new Derived No-Effect Level (DNEL) values, and manufacturers and downstream users ensure the protection of workers by keeping their exposure below those values.

Application of the restriction is deferred for 2 years for all industrial sectors.
