ECHA Temporarily Revokes Substances Registrations in Response to EU Sanctions

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has published a List of Temporary Revocations, affecting certain substances' registrations within the European Economic Area. This move comes as part of ECHA's adherence to EU sanctions, particularly those outlined in EU Council Regulations adopted pursuant to Article 215 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

Under the REACH Regulation, ECHA has the authority to temporarily revoke registrations if a registrant, or their represented non-EU manufacturer, is found to be subject to EU restrictive measures. These measures, established under EU Council Regulations pursuant to Article 215 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, involve the freezing of economic resources.

Registrants listed under these EU Council Regulations or found to be owned or controlled by a sanctioned entity are subject to temporary revocation. During this period, affected companies are prohibited from manufacturing or importing the specified substances in the EEA.

It is important to note that if the restrictive measures are later lifted or if the conditions for their application change, ECHA will reinstate the registration decisions. The temporary revocations are a proactive measure to align with EU sanctions, ensuring regulatory compliance and upholding the integrity of the REACH Regulation.

Companies affected by these temporary revocations are encouraged to review the List published by ECHA and take necessary actions to address the sanctions or conditions leading to the revocations. The agency remains vigilant in its commitment to maintaining the highest standards of chemical safety and regulatory compliance within the EEA.
