ECHA | Enforcement Forum agrees on scope of checks for consumer products and biocides in 2022
The Forum’s 10th major enforcement project (REF-10) will focus on integrated controls of consumer products. The Forum agreed that inspectors will be able to check that products comply with many different restrictions for hazardous substances under REACH.
Helsinki, 24 March 2021 - Among those that inspectors could check are new entries such as restrictions for carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances in textiles, the siloxanes D4/D5 in wash-off cosmetic products, or bisphenol A in thermal paper.
Controls will also check whether products comply with restrictions for the presence of persistent organic pollutants defined under the POPs Regulation. Here, inspectors could check PFOA in water repellent textiles or ski waxes, or short chain chlorinated paraffins in soft plastic articles.CONTINUE READING ON: echa.europa.eu
