JBCE's Environment & Energy Committee submitted its views following the call for comments for Annex XV restriction report BPA and BosC


On 21st June 2023, JBCE submitted its views on REACH Annex XV Report consultation of Bisphenols with endocrine disrupting properties for the environment and their salts (BPA and BosC).

JBCE understands that the proposed restriction proposal on BPA and BosC is in line with the target of having “a zero-pollution ambition for a toxic-free environment” which was proposed in the “Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability -Towards a Toxic-Free Environment-(CSS)”.

However, despite agreeing and supporting its concept and purpose to protect human health and the environment, we would like to point out that the currently proposed restriction raises various issues which need to be addressed in terms of scientific reasoning and socio-economic impact, as highlighted by various companies across different impacted sectors represented by JBCE.
