REACH REFIT 2017
Euroalliages has replied to the public consultation process on REACH REFIT which was running until 28 January.
This consultation, launched by DG GROW and DG ENV, aims at evaluating the REACH Regulation. It is part of the Commission's Regulatory Fitness and Performance Programme (REFIT) and of the regular reporting obligation to monitor progress in the achievement of the objectives of REACH the Regulation according to its Article 117 (4).
The evaluation covers the five compulsory evaluation criteria: effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and EU added value and examines the potential to improve the way in which it delivers on its objectives and the potential for burden reduction and simplification. The responses will be taken into consideration in the preparation of the Commission Staff Working Document, presenting the results of the REACH REFIT evaluation and the Commission general report on the functioning of REACH to be addressed to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions.
