ECHA updates figures on downstream user reports

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has updated its published figures for the number of chemical safety reports submitted by downstream users, including the number of substances reported and the number of legal entities from which reports have been received. It also indicates the reasons for submitting the report. Downstream users are required to inform ECHA if they have to prepare a downstream user chemical safety report or if they rely on certain exemptions from the obligation to prepare a chemical safety report. Further information is available at: ECHA webpage
