ECHA’s activities on restrictions
Following the European Commission's requests, ECHA prepares Annex XV restriction dossiers, reviews existing entries and investigates the need to prepare a restriction proposal. In some cases, ECHA carries out such work on its own initiative, in particular, if the substances on the Authorisation List, which are present in articles, pose unacceptable risks. The outcome of the work is reported and possible further actions can be followed on ECHA's website. ECHA may launch consultations and calls for evidence during the preparatory work.
