Enhancement of the REACH requirements for (imported) articles

Options for improvement of the chemicals regulation


The EU might introduce an authorization scheme for imported goods such as clothing, sports gear and toys in the ⁠REACH⁠ Regulation, to aim at a better protection of humans and the environment against Substances of Very High Concern in articles. An UBA study claims that the necessary amendment of the EU chemicals regulation REACH would not breach international trade law. Another simple improvement could be achieved by introducing a standardized communication format to oblige manufacturers to indicate not only the name of the Substances of Very High Concern, but also the concentrations, total volumes and information about hazardous properties and safe use and disposal through the production chain.
