ECHA publishes a new factsheet on communication obligations for certain substances exempted from registration under REACH

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has released a fact sheet on communication obligations for certain substances exempted from registration under REACH. This document explains that even though some substances may be legally placed on the market without a registration number, suppliers of such substances should communicate information down the supply chain to enable their safe use. The aim of this fact sheet is to familiarise the reader with the fact that some substances can be legally placed on the market without a registration number and with the information he can expect from his supplier concerning in particular those substances which benefit from the exemption from registration according to Article 2(7) of REACH. A copy of the fact sheet is available at: factsheet
