In the latest Community Rolling Action Plan (CoRAP), published 19 March, Carbon nanotubes are to be evaluated by Germany in 2019, due to initial grounds of concerns as ‘suspected carcinogen, other hazard based concern, wide dispersive use, consumer use, exposure of environment, cumulative exposure’.

The CoRAP is updated yearly, and the latest update lists 100 substances that are to be evaluated by Member States under 2019 to 2021. The substance evaluation is based on Articles 44-48 of the REACH Regulation.
