Inspectors prepare for EU-wide control of chemicals sold online

The Enforcement Forum and its Biocidal Product Regulation Subgroup (BPRS) started to prepare for the REACH-EN-FORCE-8 (REF-8) project, which will target chemicals sold online.

The project will cover duties under REACH restriction, classification, labelling and packaging as well as BPR duties relevant to biocidal products sold online. Preparations will run through 2019, where inspectors will identify common methods of targeting goods online and dealing with internet duty holders. Inspections will be carried out during 2020 and the report is expected in 2021.
