image of EU REACH Enforcement project

REACH, the new EU Regulation on chemicals, implies a significant restructuring and enlargement in the field of chemicals regulation, and thus also of enforcement. The importance of the Forum for enforcement included in REACH for a good implementation of REACH was early recognised. In 2006 the Nordic Chemicals Group and the Netherlands granted funds to start a joint EU project on enforcement of REACH. The aim of the project was to: - Identify present enforcement and new needs due to REACH - Investigate the state of preparation of the Member States and start preparing for the operative work of the Forum - Elaborate work division, co-operation and information exchange - Prepare a draft proposal for Rules of Procedure for the Forum - Develop a compendium of useful enforcement methods The project has resulted in several independent reports that are included in this final report. A presentation of the results has been given by the project at the 1st meeting of the Forum 11 December 2007.
