Policies & Issues: Environment

In the context of the discussions on the definition of an article in the subgroup of the Commission Working Group on REACH Implementation Project (RIP) 3.8, Orgalime understands that the Commission is requiring comments on specific cases, and more particularly on the car battery with acid/chemicals in it, which the Commission, as stated in the note dated 4 May 2007, considers as an 'outstanding borderline case'.
