Publication of the Forum pilot project on substances in articles

ECHA has published the report on the Forum pilot enforcement project on the substances in articles done with the collaboration of 15 participating countries.

The project report highlights big gaps in how companies communicate about Candidate List substances in articles throughout the supply chain. In fact, it has been found that 12 % of inspected products contain substances of very high concern (SVHCs). Moreover, the majority (88 %) of suppliers of these products are failing to communicate sufficient information to their customers about SVHCs in products they supply.

More information are available on the ECHA press release.
