REACH REFIT evaluation 2017

The European Commission (EC) has launched a public consultation on the 2017 REACH REFIT evaluation to obtain stakeholders' views on the approach to the evaluation and collect any potentially missing elements. The online public consultation is currently open and runs from 28 October 2016 until 28 January 2017. The consultation is part of a broader stakeholder consultation strategy which also includes an SME panel circulated through the Europe Enterprise Network.

 

The REACH Regulation, which applies to nanomaterials as to any other substance, includes the obligation for a review every 5 years to monitor progress in the achievement of its objectives. The second REACH Review, due in 2017, is being carried out in parallel with the fitness check on the most relevant chemicals legislation excluding REACH. The REACH REFIT evaluation (REACH Review 2017) will build on the findings of the first REACH Review (published in 2013) and examine key developments since then. The REACH REFIT evaluation (REACH review 2017), is carried out in line with the principles of Better Regulation and will cover the five compulsory evaluation criteria: effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and EU added value.
