Inspectors will check whether the SVHCs subject to authorisation that have been placed on the market have been granted an authorisation by the European Commission. They will also check whether uses of these substances comply with the conditions set in the authorisation decisions. The inspections will be carried out in collaboration with national customs and authorities responsible for occupational safety and health legislation (OSH) and for environmental protection.

The enforcement activities for REF-9 will be carried out in 2021 and a report on their results will be available towards the end of 2022.

Inspections have also started in a pilot project on recovered substances. The project is the Forum’s first to examine the interface between REACH and the EU’s Waste Framework Directive. It focuses on the exemption that the recycling sector has from registering substances that they have recovered from waste. The project targets recovered substances that fulfil the end-of-waste status.

The pilot project inspections will be carried out in 2021, while the report with the results of the project is expected during summer 2022.
