Scientific and Technical Support for the Development of Criteria to identify and group Polymers of Concern for Registration/Evaluation under Reach and their Impact Assessment
The contractor should develop scientific criteria, which would be physical-chemical, structural or toxicological properties of polymers that can be used to identify polymers with potential hazards to human health or the environment within the large group of polymer substances. Such polymers would be described as polymers of concern. Suggestions for grouping different polymers of concern based on some shared properties should also be included. Further, the contractor should identify what characterisation and toxicological testing for such polymers of concern would make sense under Registration or Evaluation.
Open call for tender.
