Specialist Printing - EUROPEAN COMMISSION UNDERTAKES EXTENSIVE REACH REGULATION REVIEW

cover-2011-SP-ISSUE3Source: SPECIALIST PRINTING WORLDWIDE : ISSUE 3: 2011

Elaine Campling reports on the implications of this latest survey

The European Commission is undertaking what is being described as an ‘extensive’ review of the REACH Regulation1.
A summary of the survey results and studyreport will be made publicly available.
A report of the ‘lessons learnt’ will especially focus on the ‘costs, administration burden and other impacts on competiveness and innovation’ of the REACH Regulation.
Unfortunately, by the time this issue goes to press, the deadline in which to complete the survey will have expired.

To complete the survey, respondents were asked to choose from a list of REACH roles that best describes the activities of their organisation, eg formulator (mixer) of chemical substances. Trade organisations and other industry representatives were not able to participate in the survey, due to the nature of the questions, which were designed/structured to be answered by organisations producing or using chemicals. A section of the survey focuses on communication and specifically addresses the extended safety data sheet requirements (ext-SDS)2, which is causing a number of difficulties for downstream users (DU) that are formulators of mixtures.
