PURPOSE: to take new measures to protect human health and the environment against persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

LEGISLATIVE ACT: Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 of the European Parliament and of the Council on persistent organic pollutants.

CONTENT: the Union is seriously concerned by the continuous release of persistent organic pollutants (‘POPs’) into the environment. Those chemical substances are transported across international boundaries, far from their sources, and they persist in the environment, bioaccumulate through the food web, and pose a risk to human health and the environment.

Objective and subject matter

Taking into account, in particular, the precautionary principle, the objective of this Regulation is to protect human health and the environment from POPs by prohibiting, phasing out as soon as possible, or restricting the manufacturing, placing on the market and use of substances subject to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants or the Protocol to the 1979 Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution on Persistent Organic Pollutants, by minimising, with a view to eliminating where feasible as soon as possible, releases of such substances, and by establishing provisions regarding waste consisting of, containing or contaminated by any of those substances.

Where appropriate, Member States may apply stricter requirements than those provided for in the Regulation.

Tasks of the Agency and the Forum

Under the new rules, the current high level of protection of human health and the environment in Europe shall be maintained. However, some tasks shall be transferred from the European Commission to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki.

The Agency's role shall include preparing and reviewing technical dossiers, including stakeholder consultations, and providing advice to which the Commission should refer when considering proposing a substance for inclusion as a POP on the lists of the Convention or Protocol. In addition, the Commission, Member States and the Agency shall cooperate to effectively implement the Union's international obligations under the Stockholm Convention.

The Forum for Exchange of Information on Enforcement set up by the REACH Regulation shall be used to coordinate a network of Member States' authorities responsible for monitoring the application of the Regulation.

Controlled substances

The Regulation adds the flame retardant decaBDE to the list of controlled substances and sets the unintentional contamination value of a substance at 10 mg/kg for cases where decaBDE is present in substances. It sets this value at 500 mg/kg for the sum of all polybrominated diphenyl ethers (tetraBDE, pentaBDE, hexaBDE, hexaBDE, heptaBDE and decaBDE) in mixtures or articles, with a review and assessment of this threshold by the Commission scheduled no later than 16 July 2021. This review will assess, inter alia, all significant impacts on health and the environment.

In addition, specific derogations concerning the use of decaBDE are introduced for aircraft, motor vehicles and electronic equipment, also in the case of imports.

For short-chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs), the Regulation introduces a derogation from the prohibition on manufacture, placing on the market and use for substances or mixtures containing SCCPs in concentrations lower than 1 % by weight or articles containing SCCPs in concentrations lower than 0,15 % by weight shall be allowed.

Reporting and monitoring

The recast includes certain adjustments, in particular with regard to streamlining, simplifying and automatising the reporting and monitoring process, and improving the provision of public information.

Comitology

In order to take account of the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it is proposed to revise the provisions by which certain powers are conferred on the European Commission.

Each Member State shall designate a competent authority or authorities responsible for the administrative tasks and enforcement activities required by the Regulation.

ENTRY INTO FORCE: 6.7.2019.

Details

The European Parliament adopted by 443 votes to 51, with 55 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on persistent organic pollutants (recast).

The proposed recast of the Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) Regulation updates the Annexes in accordance with the decisions taken in 2015 and 2017 during the meetings of the Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. In addition, the update defines a new role for the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), which is now responsible for supporting the Commission's work in preparing substance dossiers.

The European Parliament’s position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure amended the Commission proposal as follows:

Objective and subject matter

Taking into account, in particular, the precautionary principle, the objective of this Regulation is to protect human health and the environment from POPs by prohibiting, phasing out as soon as possible, or restricting the manufacturing, placing on the market and use of substances subject to the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants or the Protocol to the 1979 Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution on Persistent Organic Pollutants, by minimising, with a view to eliminating where feasible as soon as possible, releases of such substances, and by establishing provisions regarding waste consisting of, containing or contaminated by any of those substances.

Where appropriate, Member States may apply stricter requirements than those provided for in the Regulation, in accordance with the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

Control measures and exceptions

The new Regulation shall prohibit the manufacture, placing on the market and use of substances listed in Annexes I and II either as such, in mixtures or in articles except (i) in the case of a substance intended for use in laboratory research or as a reference standard or (ii) in the case of a substance present in substances, mixtures or articles as an unintentional trace contaminant.

The amended text adds decaBDE to the list of controlled substances and sets the value of unintentional contamination of a substance at 10 mg/kg for cases where decaBDE is present in substances. It sets this value at 500 mg/kg for the sum of all polybrominated diphenyl ethers (tetraBDE, pentaBDE, hexaBDE, hexaBDE, heptaBDE and decaBDE) in mixtures or articles, with a review and assessment of this threshold by the Commission to be carried out no later than two years after the date of entry into force of the Regulation. This review shall assess, inter alia , all relevant impacts on health and the environment.

In addition, specific derogations concerning the use of decaBDE are introduced for aircraft, motor vehicles and electronic equipment, also in the case of imports.

For short-chain chlorinated paraffins (SCCPs), the text introduces a derogation from the prohibition on manufacture, placing on the market and use for substances or mixtures containing SCCPs in concentrations lower than 1 % by weight or articles containing SCCPs in concentrations lower than 0,15 % by weight shall be allowed.

Notification

Where a substance is listed in Part A of Annex I or in Part A of Annex II, a Member State wishing to permit, until the deadline specified in the relevant Annex, the manufacturing and use of that substance as a closed-system site-limited intermediate shall notify accordingly the Secretariat of the Convention.

Such notification may be made only if the following conditions are satisfied:

- the manufacturer demonstrates to the competent authority of the Member State in which the manufacturer is established that the manufacturing process will transform the substance into one or more other substances that do not exhibit the characteristics of a POP, ensuring that it is rigorously contained by technical means during its whole life cycle;

- the manufacturer demonstrates to the competent authority of the Member State in which the manufacturer is established that the substance is a closed-system site-limited intermediate and that it is not expected that either humans or the environment will be exposed to any significant quantities of the substance during its production and use;

- the manufacturer informs the Member State on the details of actual or estimated total manufacturing and use of the substance concerned and the nature of the closed-system site-limited process, specifying the amount of any non-transformed and unintentional trace contamination by any POP starting material in the final substance, mixture or article.

Monitoring and review

The Commission shall:

- regularly assess the possible need for the mandatory monitoring of a substance listed in Part B of Annex III. In the light of such an assessment and any data made available to it by Member States, the Commission is empowered to adopt delegated acts to amend Annex III in order to move, where appropriate, a substance from Part B of Annex III to Part A thereof;

- keep Annexes IV and V under constant review and shall, where appropriate, make legislative proposals to amend these Annexes in order to adapt them to the changes to the list of substances set out in the Annexes to the Convention or the Protocol or to modify existing entries or provisions in the Annexes to this Regulation in order to adapt them to scientific and technical progress.

PURPOSE: to protect human health and the environment against persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

PROPOSED ACT: Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

BACKGROUND: Regulation (EC) No 850/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council (the POPs Regulation) implements the commitments of the Union under the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (the Stockholm Convention) approved by Council Decision 2006/507/EC and under the Protocol to the 1979 Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs Protocol).

The recast of the POP Regulation is proposed for the following reasons:

in view of the procedural changes introduced by the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (the 'Lisbon Treaty'), it is necessary to adapt the provisions of the POPs Regulation concerning comitology by specifying which rules are subject to implementing acts and clarified which conditions apply to the adoption of delegated acts; in order to support the Commission in its tasks foreseen under the POPs Regulation, it is proposed to: (i) involve the European Chemicals Agency in certain administrative, technical and scientific tasks necessary for the implementation of the Regulation; (ii) support the enforcement of the POPs Regulation by Member States by including a coordination role for the Forum for Exchange of Information on Enforcement established by Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council ( REACH ); in light of the experience of the functioning of the procedures under the POPs Regulation, it is proposed to include certain technical amendments to the operative provisions, such as clarifying existing definitions and adding the definitions of manufacturing, use and a closed-system site-limited intermediate and to update the provisions of the reporting requirements.

The proposal contributes to the achievement of priority objective 3 of the 7th Environment Action Programme to 2020: ‘to safeguard the Union’s citizens from environment-related pressures and risks to health and well-being’.

CONTENT: the recast proposal contains provisions concerning the monitoring of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and the reporting of information on their manufacture, use and emissions. It also lays down obligations on the monitoring of the application of the POP Regulation. It also requires the establishment and regular review of an implementation plan for the Stockholm Convention.

The proposed recast Regulation would essentially maintain all provisions of the current POPs Regulation, including those that go beyond the requirements of the Stockholm Convention and the POPs Protocol.

In order to enhance clarity and improve the functioning of the Regulation. The main changes are as follows:

Clarification of definitions : the definitions for ‘placing on the market’, ‘article’, ‘substance’, ‘waste’, ‘disposal’ and ‘recovery’ have been amended. The term ‘preparation’ has been replaced by ‘mixture’ to reflect the changes in the general chemicals legislation. It has also been proposed to add definitions for 'manufacturing', 'use' and 'closed-system, site-limited intermediate'.

Involvement of the European Chemicals Agency : a role for the Agency in the implementation of this Regulation has been proposed due to the Agency's expertise and experience with the implementation of general chemicals legislation and international agreements on chemicals, in particular regarding its current involvement in REACH and Regulation (EU) No 649/2012. It is proposed that the role of the Agency will include its involvement in the technical preparation of dossiers on substances that may be used by the Commission, should it use its discretion to propose one or more such substances to be listed as POPs in the Stockholm Convention. In particular, the Agency will take action where substances are considered to fulfil the criteria in Annex D of the Stockholm Convention.

In addition, the Commission, the Member States and the Agency should cooperate to implement effectively the Union's international obligations under the Convention.

Role of the REACH ‘Forum’ : the Forum is a network of authorities responsible for the enforcement of REACH, Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) and Regulation (EC) 649/2012 (PIC) in the EU. As a result of the experience it has accrued in relation to those chemical regulations, it is deemed appropriate to propose a role for the Forum in coordinating the enforcement tasks specified in this Regulation.

Comitology : in order to take account of the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it is proposed to revise the provisions by which certain powers are conferred on the European Commission.

Reporting and monitoring : the recast includes certain adjustments, in particular with regard to streamlining, simplifying and automatising the reporting and monitoring process, and improving the provision of public information.

BUDGETARY IMPACT: the proposal is not expected to have important budgetary implications since no new tasks were introduced compared to Regulation (EC) No 850/2004. The transfer of certain tasks from the Commission to the Agency is expected to have no significant impact on the overall costs of implementation. Reductions are expected to be achieved in the medium-term considering the potential for synergies with other existing tasks of the Agency.

The financing of the tasks carried out by the Agency will be provided in form of a subsidy from the Union budget.
