National Inspectorates - Slovakia

A system of official controls of REACH is maintained by inspection bodies. The objectives of their inspections depend on the area of responsibility of each authority and are specified by their respective "competency acts".

In general REACH inspectors in Slovakia are entitled to:

  • order that corrective measures be taken,
  • impose fines in administrative proceedings if they reveal non-compliance with duties imposed by REACH,
  • impose a disciplinary fine if a duty holder obstructs inspectors in the course of their duty.

Other authorities offer assistance to REACH enforcers. For example the Centre for Chemical Substances and Preparations offers advice to enforcers while the Ministry of Economy organises conferences and provides for coordination of inspection activities.
