From: Prop 65 Clearinghouse Blog

As of October 15, 2010, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced a project to inspect mixture formulators, the companies that purchase chemicals and prepare formulations such as paints, dyes, and industrial compounds. The enforcement project, designed to test REACH compliance, is slated to begin in 2011.

ECHA specifies that the "inspectors will control the supply-chain related obligations for substances in the mixtures prepared by formulators as well as the CLP notification requirements. They will also check if the substances placed on the market in mixtures are registered or pre-registered. In addition, the inspectors will raise awareness of the future obligations for Downstream Users with relation to the extended safety data sheet."

I am very satisfied with the work provided by Nexreg. The work has been through, timely and reasonable. Additionally, both Mike Harvey and Nazifa Beganovic are very knowledgeable. Mike and Nazifa's efforts have been an essential part of getting our MSDS program on track and positioned for the Global Harmonized System.
