EU Commission Amends REACH Annexes

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has amended portions of its regulation on the registration, evaluation, authorization, and restriction of chemicals (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, also known as REACH) to provide more clarity on the obligations of registrants regarding the submission of required information.

Published in the Official Journal of the European Union, Commission Regulation (EU) 2022/477 modifies, adds, or deletes text affecting more than 50 separate points under Annexes VI through X of the REACH regulation. Most of these changes address specific issues related to clarification of the requirements for testing for substances for potential mutagenicity and for reproductive toxicity.
