The updated list of substances concerned by the French Tax on Diffuse Pollution has been published in the Official Journal of 13 December 2020. Some modifications have been performed in comparison to the list published in October 2020 for public consultation.
The changes in comparison to the 2019 list correspond to new knowledge on the classification of the substances. The update is based in particular on Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 as amended by the 14th ATP for the purposes of its adaptation to technical and scientific progress, on opinions on non-harmonised substances published by ANSES, on opinions published by EFSA or on the RAC of ECHA (Risk Assessment Committee of the European Chemicals Agency). On the basis of the information collected, the highest mention attributed to the substance is used to define the tax category.
The new list applies by 1st January 2021.
