The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, has published two further shortened versions of its REACH guidance documents in the Guidance in a Nutshell series.
The two documents are:
- Safety Data Sheets, which covers important topics including which products do or do not require a Safety Data Sheet (SDS), what information has to be included in an SDS, and the format of an SDS.
- Downstream Users, which covers important topics including the obligations of downstream users (DUs) under REACH, and communications along the supply chain.
These two topics may appear peripheral to the effective operation of the REACH legislation, but are important in the overall process. There is some evidence that downstream users are not always fully engaged with the REACH process and so this guidance should help to begin to address this situation.
