List of substances of possible concern

The OSPAR List of Substances of Possible Concern is divided into 4 sections

Section A details substances which warrant further work by OSPAR because they do not meet the criteria for Sections B – D and substances for which, for the time being, information is insufficient to group them in Sections B – D

Section B contains substances which are of concern for OSPAR but which are adequately addressed by EC initiatives or other international forums

Section C contains substances which are not produced and/or used in the OSPAR catchment or are used in sufficiently contained systems making a threat to the marine environment unlikely

Section D lists substances which appear not to be “hazardous substances” in the meaning of the Hazardous Substances Strategy but where the evidence is not conclusive
