New project tightens REACH enforcement

Written by Brett Mathews

BRUSSELS – The EU has launched a new project aimed at ensuring the proper enforcement of 'authorisation' regulations on chemical substances under Reach legislation. Chemical substances which are subject to 'authorisation' under Reach legislation – which include several flame retardants and phthalates used in the textile industry – cannot be placed on the market or used after a given date, unless an 'authorisation' is granted for their specific use, or the use is exempted from authorisation. The authorisation procedure aims to assure the risks from Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) are properly controlled and these substances are ultimately replaced by suitable alternatives.
