COMMENT ONConsultation on the draft opinion of the Committee of Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC)

WVMetalle would like to comment on the SEAC opinion on an Annex XV dossier proposing restrictions on Soluble Cobalt Salts.

In essence, WVMetalle agrees with SEAC that the restriction initially proposed by the Dossier Submitter is not the most appropriate EU-wide measure to guarantee adequate control. This is by far more targeted achieved by implementing a Binding Occupational Limit Value (BOELV) under the umbrella of the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive (CMD).
