What changes in the 14th RoC?
The Report on Carcinogens (RoC) is a document prepared by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) of the United States, listing a series of substances identified as either “known human carcinogen” or “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen”. An update is published every two years.
The 14th RoC edition introduces the following changes:
- Cobalt and cobalt compounds: added to the list as “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen“.
- Trichloroethylene (TCE): up to the previous version of the RoC, TCE was listed as a “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen” substance. With the 14th revision, TCE is being listed as a “known human carcinogen”. This substance is subject to restrictions in the EU.
