The HPV dossier has been assessed at SIAM 10.

Recommendation: “The chemical is a candidate for further work. In order to evaluate the developmental toxicity, a reproductive/developmental test is needed for this chemical”.

Awaiting the publication of the complete SIDS document on the UNEP website, only the SIAP is available.

The ECHA/JRC online tracking system provides detailed information about HPV and LPV chemicals in the EU. For priority list chemicals, it tells how far in the assessment process a substance has progressed including an overview of the conclusions reached, statistics and testing requirements.
