Many REACH Registrants Not in Compliance, Says ECHA Forum
Most of the non-compliance was related to failure to comply with the new Safety Data Sheet requirements or failure to correctly register their substances. Sometimes this meant no registration was submitted at all, other times there was a lack of preregistration, and in still others the company preregistered but did so incorrectly. Possible penalties for non-compliance could include loss of registrations, public shaming of companies with multiple non-compliance, fines, and criminal complaints.
The report will be available on the ECHA web site.
