European Chemicals Agency Enforcement Group Announces Next Project

It will concéntrate on enforcing REACH Annex XVII restrictions, with inspections taking place during 2016.

The European Chemicals Agency announced Nov. 10 that 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 take place during 2016, and the final report will become available in 2017.

The meeting resulted in agreement 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, and the second one will follow up specific cases where ECHA has identified deficiencies in harmonized classification and labeling of chemicals. These will focus on substances with CMR (Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, or Toxic for Reproduction) or sensitizing properties.

Reports on both pilot projects are expected to be released during the first half of 2016. The next meeting of this group will take place March 24-26, 2015, in Helsinki, Finland.
