LONDON (ICIS)--The European Chemicals Agency’s (ECHA’s) forum for exchange of information on enforcement approved a new project focused on downstream users who formulate mixtures, the agency said on Friday.

Project “REACH-EN-FORCE 2”, which was approved at the forum's 8th meeting held in Helsinki this week, aimed to ensure that formulators of mixtures complied with their duties in order to meet the requirements imposed by the Reach and CLP (classification, labelling and packaging) regulations.

In particular, the ECHA said inspectors would control supply-chain related obligations for substances in mixtures prepared by formulators as well as the CLP notification requirements.

They will also check if the substances placed on the market in mixtures are registered or pre-registered," the ECHA said.

In addition, the ECHA said that at the forum meeting, some of its working groups addressed their efforts to identify the practical implications of the CLP Regulation and were preparing a CLP training event for inspectors, who would will then act as trainers in their own Member States.
