Workshop: PMT substances under REACH

The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute together with the German Environment Agency (UBA) are pleased to invite you to the workshop "PMT (persistent, mobile and toxic) and vPvM substances under REACH. Voluntary measures and regulatory options to protect the sources of drinking water" to be held in Berlin on 13th and 14th March. The chemical industry, drinking water supplier and regulatory body representatives are invited to enter this discussion.

In alignment with REACH, UBA has proposed criteria and an assessment procedure to identify persistent, mobile, toxic and very persistent, very mobile substances that pose a hazard to the sources of drinking water.  A list of substances registered under REACH that could be considered to fulfil the PMT/vPvM criteria will be made available prior to the workshop. The workshop will focus on available tools and measures under REACH that can be used in order to minimize environmental emissions for these substance.
