Study launched on EU chemicals legislation finder

ECHA is exploring the feasibility of creating an EU chemicals legislation finder, which would give an overview of how a given substance is regulated in the EU. A preliminary list of legislation potentially in the scope of the ‘finder’ is being analysed to see how chemical substances are identified in these legislation, in what format the data exists, and how the information is kept up-to-date. ECHA’s accredited stakeholders and Member State authorities have also been contacted to map the needs of potential users. The study will be concluded by November this year.
