Event - Detail

  • Webinar series on REACH restriction – Restriction on Cadmium in jewelleries

    The REACH&CLP Luxembourg Helpdesk invites you to the second webinar of its series on REACH restriction. This latter will focus on the restriction of cadmium in jewelleries. This webinar will take place on 22nd April 2024 from 14:00 to 15:30.

Under REACH, restriction is an instrument to protect human health and the environment from unacceptable risks posed by chemicals. Restriction is normally used to limit or ban the manufacture, placing on the market (including imports) or use of a substance, but can impose any relevant condition, such as requiring technical measures or specific labels. A restriction may apply to any substance on its own, in a mixture or in an article, including those that do not require registration, for example, substances manufactured or imported below one tonne per year or certain polymers.

In this second webinar, the REACH&CLP Helpdesk will present in detail the restriction concerning cadmium in jewelleries (entry n°23 of the annex XVII of REACH), including a quick reminder on the restriction procedure. Moreover, an overview of the different controls made by the Luxembourgish authorities under REACH will be presented and will highlight the issues regarding the cadmium restriction. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask their questions to the Helpdesk team.

Programme

The presentations will be held in French.
