Status Commission decided
Details on the scope of restriction Manufacturing, and all industrial and professional uses of the substance, where workers’ exposure exceeds a level specified in the restriction.
Reason for restriction NMP is a substance used in numerous industrial applications and in numerous products. Releases during industrial processes cause worker exposure. Our main concern is the use of NMP in coatings and cleaners for consumers and professionals. At this moment it is not clear if combined exposures may lead to unacceptable risks introducing some uncertainty or lack of possible exposure scenarios in the risk assessment. This possible concern remains difficult to quantify at this stage. It, however, can also not be stated that there is no concern at all. We consider the restriction the most appropriate risk management option because in our view authorization is less proportional and less practical.
