Feedback on the online session on the restriction of cadmium in jewellery

On 22 April 2024, the REACH&CLP Luxembourg Helpdesk organised an online conference focusing on the REACH restriction of cadmium in jewellery.

The REACH&CLP Luxembourg Helpdesk organised this online session to remind and raise the awareness of companies that manufacture or import jewellery about their obligations regarding cadmium, as set out in entry 23 of Annex XVII of REACH.

This session provided a brief reminder of the various stages in the restriction procedure under REACH and an overview of the restriction of cadmium, before going into more detail on the specific part concerning jewellery.  The Environment Agency (AEV) gave a presentation on the controls put in place in Luxembourg as part of market surveillance, with a reminder that it publishes an annual report on controls and inspections carried out in the fields of chemical substances, cross-border waste shipments and industrial emissions.

This online session also served as a platform for participants to ask questions on this specific point concerning the REACH restriction on cadmium in jewellery.

The presentations and video are available on the event's dedicated page.
