Key spot-check substances in 2016 REACH Annex XVII enforcement

2016-04-12 58

In March 2016, ECHA published the compendium on analytical methods for restrictions under REACH Annex XVII. It describes over 100 recommended analytical methods that inspectors in Europe can use when checking compliance with REACH restrictions in Annex XVII.

The compendium will be used in the ongoing REF-4 project which is coordinated by ECHA's Enforcement Forum. In this project, enforcement authorities in 29 European countries inspect restrictions of 14 substances which may be found in consumer products, such as textiles, toys or jewellery or used professionally, for glues or brazing fillers. The project will last for the whole of 2016 and may target different REACH duty holders. The enforcement authorities will also cooperate with the customs authorities.
