Reminder: take part in Defra surveys on Article 33 of UK REACH


The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) invites GB based suppliers and retailers to complete a survey about industry’s experience of duties under Article 33 of UK REACH.

These surveys will be live until 14 March 2022. This is a great opportunity to share your views and experiences on the implementation of Article 33 in Great Britain.

This is not an enforcement challenge. The surveys will help Defra assess suppliers’ and retailers’ experience of communicating information about SVHCs in articles down the supply chain.

The results will be 100% anonymous and used to inform part of the Secretary of State’s review of Article 33.

Who should complete the survey: A person from your company who understands the company’s processes for communicating information within supply chains.

Time to complete: 10 minutes (can be completed in multiple sittings)

Closing date: 14 March 2022
