Restriction proposals (set out in an Annex XV restriction report) and SEAC draft opinions are subject to consultation. ECHA also launches calls for comments and evidence in the preparatory phase of the restriction proposal and on the different documents under preparation in ECHA in relation to restrictions, such as reports on substances in articles and guidelines on restriction entries.

Interested parties who may wish to submit comments are companies, organisations representing industry or civil society, individual citizens, as well as public authorities. Comments are welcomed from the EU or beyond.
