New PACT substances

Echa has added four substances to its public activities coordination tool (PACT) for risk management option analysis (RMOA) or hazard assessment:

  • 2-(4-tert-butylbenzyl)propionaldehyde;
  • perchloric acid and its salts;
  • skin sensitising substances in textile articles; and
  • tris(2-methoxyethoxy)vinylsilane.

Sweden assessed 2-(4-tert-butylbenzyl)propionaldehyde. It has judged it not to have persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT), or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB) properties, based on the currently available information.

Perchloric acid and its salts, and skin sensitising substances in textile articles have RMOAs under development.

And in the case of tris(2-methoxyethoxy)vinylsilane, Echa has proposed setting a harmonised classification as a category 1B reprotoxicant.
