PRE Activites on Coal Tar Pitch
It was followed by a public consultation to which PRE – European Refractories Products Federation replied. CTPHT is pending addition to the Authorisation List, with a proposed Latest Application Date (LAD) of 21 months. PRE has edited early September 2016 a position paper in order to defend a longer LAD.
For the “intermediate use” for sliding gates, PRE experts on CTPHT have edited a technical guidance document, in order to have this use recognised as an intermediate use (and thereby exempted from authorisation). An external review was conducted by the consultant Bipro. The proposals from different sectors will be examined by ECHA – European Chemicals Agency and the final technical guidance will be presented on the ECHA website.
