ECHA to Make Drinking Water Safer through Positive List of Chemicals

27 January 2020

ECHA announces the compilation of an EU positive list of chemicals that are safe to be used in materials coming into contact with drinking water. The list, which comes along with the recast of the Drinking Water Directive, is aimed to improve consumer protection and ensure equal safety standards. The first positive list is expected to cover around 1 500 chemicals and will be adopted by the European Commission by 2024.
