This news update regarding REACH Annex XVII restrictions is brought to you by ECHA.



At their 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 and individual restrictions to be covered will be confirmed in early 2015. Inspections will then take place during 2016. The final report will become available in 2017.

The Forum also agreed on two new smaller scale pilot projects.

The first will check that the packaging of chemical products available to the general public have appropriate child resistant fastenings where needed.


The second 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.
