This draft Commission Regulation aims to:

  • delete three entries from Annex XVII to the REACH Regulation, as the substances concerned have been, or are about to be, incorporated into Regulation 20192012 on persistent organic pollutants
  • include an exemption, from the aforementioned entries 28 to 30, for devices covered by Regulation (EU) 2017745 on medical devices
  • delete an obsolete paragraph mandating a review of the restriction on liquid substances or mixtures
  • delete obsolete references to “R phrases” from the restriction on liquid substances or mixtures
  • delete obsolete references to CMR classifications under Directive 67548 from the titles of Appendixes 1–6 of Annex XVII
  • update the references to testing methods for azocolourants in Appendix 10 of Annex XVII, to reflect technical progress
  • delete the CAS and EC numbers from entry 46 of Annex XVII, as their inclusion, in 2009, inadvertently reduced the scope of this entry, and the original intention of the legislator should be reflected again.
