On 25 Jun 2020, the European Commission published Regulation (EU) 2020/878 amending the annex II of REACH regulation. The annex II of REACH regulation sets the content and format requirements for chemical safety data sheets in the EU. The new regulation means that there will be revised requirements for SDSs for the EU market. In this article, we would like to give you a brief summary of what the main changes are.
The following two general requirements are new:
TThe communication through the supply chain for endocrine disruptors will be improved.Not only information on whether the substance meets the criteria for persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic or very persistent and very bioaccumulative should be given in section 2.3 other hazards, information on whether the substance was included in the list established in accordance with Article 59(1) for having endocrine disrupting properties, and whether the substance is a substance identified as having endocrine disrupting properties.
For a mixture, information shall be provided for each such substance that is present in the mixture at a concentration equal to or greater than 0,1 % by weight.
The new regulation comes into force on 1 Jan 2021. Existing SDSs can be used until 31 December 2022.
