German RMOA-List

Structure of the following table:

The substances are listed by their chemical name and sometimes also their common name.

The gathered information in the category "known uses" are abstracts from registration dossiers and therefore may not be complete.

The status shows whether a regulatory management option analysis [Link only available in German] (RMOA) is in progress or has already been concluded.

The "consultation" category gives companies or associations from the affected industries the possibility to submit relevant information via the web form provided (only active during consultation period).

Substances in fibreform

Protection against fibre dust (alveolar and with critical morphologies) in the EU.

The adverse health effects of bio-persistent fibre dust with critical morphology are independent of their chemical properties. Fibre dust with critical morphology consists of particles with a length greater than 5 µm, a diameter smaller than 3 µm, and a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 3:1 (WHO fibre criterion). Due to these dimensions, they are able to reach the deep lung (alveoli and bronchioles) after inhalation. This also applies to thicker fibres (> 3 µm), if they have a fracture behaviour that leads to fibre dust (splinter fracture). A well-known example of fibre toxicity and potential adverse effects is asbestos. In order to build a solid information base on relevant fibre materials for the evaluation of regulatory options, it is also essential to have differentiated information on manufacturing, import and use quantities as well as on exposure-relevant life cycle steps. The focus is on fibre materials with a diameter smaller than 3 µm as well as other materials that can release fibre dust with diameters smaller than 3 µm during their life cycle due to mechanical effects (e.g. breaking/splicing), chemical processes (e.g. oxidation/aging) or physical conditions (e.g. heat).


The fibre materials were roughly classified into the following product groups:

1. Mineral wool

2. Ceramic fibres

3. High temperature glass fibres

4. Micro glass fibres

5. Textile glass fibres

6. Whiskers

7. Carbon fibres

8. Carbon nanotubes

9. Organic polymer fibres

10. Other
