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."

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
