Appels à soumettre commentaires et preuves

Calls for comments and evidence allow interested parties to signal their interest and express their views and concerns in the preparatory phase of the restriction proposal. They also let interested parties comment on the different documents under preparation in ECHA in relation to restrictions, such as reports on substances in articles and guidelines on restriction entries.

Additional information to justify or support comments made is also welcomed. The information gathered will provide an input into developing Annex XV restriction dossiers or other documents. When we open a call for comments and evidence, we intend to give parties who otherwise might not have been identified and consulted a chance to submit information.

The calls for comments and evidence do not take the place of the public consultation on restriction proposals developed by Member States or ECHA, which forms a standard part of the restriction process.

Consultations close at 23:59 Helsinki time.

Subject of the call
Call for evidence on analytical methods to measure CMR substances in childcare articles
Objective of the call
The European Commission has requested ECHA to prepare a report on carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances (CMR) in childcare articles (see mandate). This work will support the Commission in the preparation of a restriction proposal for CMR 1A or 1B substances in childcare articles on the basis of REACH Article 68(2).

In their mandate, the Commission requests information on availability of analytical methods to identify CMR 1A or 1B substances in different material types of childcare articles. This information will be useful to conclude about the enforceability of the restriction proposal.

This call for evidence aims to collect information on suitable analytical methods to measure CMR 1A or 1B substances in childcare articles.
Target group
This call for evidence is intended for testing laboratories (e.g., enforcement, customs, independent and industry laboratories). Both EU/EEA and non-EU stakeholders are encouraged to participate. Information can be submitted confidentially and will be treated as such by ECHA.
