[Statement] EU proposal to nominate D4 under the Stockholm Convention is inconsistent with ECHA recommendations

Following the publication of the European Commission’s proposal to nominate octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (D4) for potential listing in Annex A, B and/or C of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, we call on EU authorities to ensure consistency with the ongoing EU regulatory process and apply proportionality before nominating D4.
