1 in 4 imported products found to be non-compliant with REACH and CLP
24/09/2020

A pilot project by ECHA’s Enforcement Forum examining imports of products into the EU has found that 23 % of inspected products were non-compliant with REACH and CLP. Some imports contained illegal amounts of hazardous substances that are restricted in the EU, while others had incorrect hazard labelling – which could compromise their safe use and put citizens’ health at risk if they enter the market.

ECHA’s committees back restricting over 1 000 skin sensitising chemicals used in clothing and other articles
22/09/2020
The Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) supports France and Sweden’s proposal to restrict the use of skin sensitising substances in clothing, footwear and other articles with similar skin contact. If adopted, the restriction will prevent many people from developing new skin allergies while also relieving the symptoms of many of those who already have them. This is expected to result in health benefits equivalent to at least €708 million per year.
