Submitted restrictions under consideration

This table shows ongoing consultations on conforming restriction proposals and SEAC draft opinions; the links to the web forms for submitting comments to ECHA during the relevant consultations can be found by clicking on details. For consultations on conforming restriction proposals, two deadlines are given; comments submitted by the first deadline are often very influential as they will be considered in the first discussion on the proposed restriction and more substantial comments should be submitted at the latest 1 month before the final deadline.

Please note: the ECHA Committees will not take into account the comments received after the final deadline in their opinion making process.

Consultations close at 23:59 Helsinki time (EET).
