ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, presented the preliminary findings of REACH-EN-FORCE-2 to the participants of the 13th plenary meeting of the ECHA Forum which took place from 27 to 30 November 2012 in Helsinki. The REACH-EN-FORCE-2 project considered the e quality of safety data sheets (SDSs) for mixtures, and how formulators of mixtures had compiled these.

The study, which involved 29 Member States and over 1200 companies, showed that 52 % of SDSs submitted under REACH did not comply with the REACH Regulation. The non-compliance rate was lower for pre-registrations (12 %) and CLP submissions (25 %).
