EU Regulation on export and import of hazardous chemicals | Amendment of Annexes I and V
Pursuant to Article 23(1) of Regulation (EU) No 649/2012 concerning the export and import of hazardous chemicals, at least once a year the Commission is required to review, on the basis of developments in Union law and under the Convention, the list of chemicals in Annex I to that Regulation.
Since the last review of Annex I a number of regulatory actions in respect of certain chemicals have been taken under Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009 concerning the placing of plant protection products on the market. In addition, the legal requirements under Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals (REACH), Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 on the making available of biocidal products on the market and Regulation (EU) No 2017/852 on mercury have to be taken into account.
At the eighth Conference of the Parties to the Rotterdam Convention decisions were taken to include further chemicals in Annex III to the Convention. In addition, decisions were taken at the eighth Conference of the Parties to the Stockholm Convention to include further chemicals in Annex A to the Convention. Those regulatory actions and decisions should be reflected in Annexes I and V.
