ECHA announcement #DrinkingWaterDirective

Friday, January 15, 2021

Following the entry into force of the revised #DrinkingWaterDirective on January 12th, 2020, #ECHA has announced it will support the European Commission in building a positive list of #chemicals, compositions or constituents which can be safely used in materials coming into contact with drinking water.

The first lists will be based on national lists and are expected to cover around 1500 chemicals for different types of materials. They will be adopted by the European Commission in 2025.

ECHA will also support the Commission to develop information requirements for applicants and assessment methods in close collaboration with the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
