Brussels 29 September 2022 – According to Cefic’s latest analysis of data from the EU’s Safety Gate on non-compliance with EU chemicals legislation, there has been a four-fold increase of chemicals not compliant with the REACH legislation from products labelled with an “unknown” origin over just two years. This is most likely due to increased online shopping since the COVID-19 pandemic. Not knowing the origins of these products containing non-compliant chemicals reduces the EU’s ability to monitor online markets and improve the safety of products.
