EU-ECHA - Restrictions on chemicals are focus of new enforcement project
At its recent plenary meeting, the Forum for Exchange of Information on Enforcement decided that its next major project will focus on enforcing REACH Annex XVII restrictions, the scope of which will be determined early 2015. Inspections will then take place during 2016. The final report will become available in 2017.
A smaller scale project will follow up specific cases where ECHA has identified deficiencies in harmonised classification and labelling. These will focus on substances with CMR or sensitising properties. The report is expected in the first half of 2016.
In an open session with accredited stakeholder organisations,a number of items were for discussion including enforcing of dossier evaluation decisions, joint submission obligations, enforcement actions on nano-materials and involving customs authorities in REACH enforcement.
