Importance of Restrictions

Restrictions are a tool to protect human health and the environment from unacceptable risks posed by some chemicals. Restrictions, described in Annex XVII of Regulation 1907/2006 (REACH), may limit or ban the manufacture, placing on the market or use of a substance. Restrictions to which substances are potentially subjected have to be reported in Section 15 of the SDS.

Last June 9th 2023, the latest update to Annex XVII to REACH Regulation has been published in the form of Regulation 2023/1132.

What does Regulation 2023/1132 bring to the table?

Regulation 2023/1132 modifies Appendixes 1, 2, 5 and 6 to Annex XVII to REACH Regulation, containing the list of substances directly correlated to the assignment of Restrictions n. 28 and 30, by adding new entries and modifying preexisting ones.

This update reflects the changes to Annex VI to Reg. 1272/2008 (CLP) brought by Regulation 2022/692 (ATP 18), which added 39 harmonized classification, modified 17 preexisting entries and deleted one.

Trace One is already working on implementing and providing the update related to these new regulations.
