The European Commission (EC) is consulting for comments on the update of the list of restricted substances under REACH Regulation.

The proposed update aims to protect consumers by:

  • adding substances recently classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction (CMRs) to the list of restricted substances
  • making it easier to implement the current restriction on azocolourants by referencing new test methods
  • removing several obsolete provisions and references

The deadline for comments is on May 25th, 2020.
