Publication of the report on the REF project on classification and labelling of mixtures

The report on the REF-6 enforcement project on labelling and classification of mixtures has been published and available on ECHA’s website.

This Forum enforcement project has found significant non-compliance in the classification and labelling of mixtures. The most common mixtures checked were washing and cleaning products; biocidal products; coatings, paints, thinners and paint removers; adhesives and sealants; room fragrances and air freshener products. These products are known to commonly contain hazardous ingredients. One of the main findings was 43 % of all reported companies were found to have at least one non-compliance and 44 % of reported mixtures were non-compliant in some way.

More information are available on ECHA’s press release.
