The European Commission (DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs and DG Environment) has launched the Open Public Consultation for the Fitness check of REACH. This is part of an evaluation of the REACH Regulation and is part of the Commission's Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme (REFIT). The roadmap for the REACH REFIT can be found here: http://ec.europa.eu/smart-regulation/roadmaps/docs/2017_env_005_reach_refit_en.pdf
The objective of the Open Public Consultation is to obtain stakeholder views on strengths and weaknesses of REACH as well as any potentially missing elements.
If you are interested in taking part in the Open Public Consultation on REACH, which includes questions concerning procedures such as Authorisation, you can find the link here: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/REACHrefit2017
RPA has been leading work on the Fitness check of CLP and related chemicals legislation, excluding REACH. The outputs of our study should be available next year.
