Enforceability on Restricting Creosote: Advice now available

To improve transparency in the legislative process, ECHA’s Enforcement Forum decided to make its advice on the enforceability of REACH restriction proposals public. The Forum advice will, from now on, be available on ECHA’s website.

The first published advice is on the proposal to restrict creosote and related substances in treated wood. The Forum considers that the proposed restriction has clear scope and is enforceable, but recommends some changes, such as setting a limit value and clarifications to the wording of the restriction.
