Please see below an invitation for comments about REACH implementation from the Commission


The Commission has started the review of the scope of REACH mandated by Article 138(6) of the REACH Regulation and will be assisted by a contractor in the development of this work. Part of the project will be the integration and assessment of stakeholders’ contribution to the review. In particular the Commission and the contractor aim at providing stakeholders with an opportunity to share any relevant experiences they may have gathered when facing the challenges of implementing REACH. Any stakeholder who has identified a specific instance where a provision in EU legislation has overlapped with a REACH provision or where there is a gap in the interface between REACH and other EU legislation is welcome to send their contribution to the contractor through the form available at . This website will be operational until 1 December 2010. Please feel free to forward this message to other interested stakeholders as well.

Attached is a list (to date) of agreed changes to ADR / RID 2007 that will go towards forming the text of ADR / RID 2009. Work towards what will be 'CDG 2009' has already begun. We are now asking for your help with:

i) identifying what, if anything, we have missed (this preliminary listing is obviously not the final 'official' listing of all changes that will appear in ADR / RID 2009); 

ii) what changes do you think will have a significant impact on your industry? (and why?); and,  

iii) what can you begin to let us have in the way of provisional costings (or data that will aid in calculating costings)?
