EDA has contracted the consultancy REACHLaw Ltd to carry out a study on the impact of REACH & CLP European Chemical Regulations on the European defence sector, including in comparison with non-EU defence industries with business in EU. Based on the impact assessment practical improvement proposals for REACH and CLP and their current implementation regime will be developed, mainly with view to the upcoming REACH review 2017 by the European Commission. A list of important substances for defence shall be used to illustrate the impacts and improvement proposals. The study will be complemented with issues relating other relevant EU chemicals laws impacting defence such as BPR, POP and ODS.
You are invited to take part in this survey as your input will be useful or even critical, especially if you hold relevant information on impacts (both positive and negative) and specific substances affected, and you have ideas and opinions on the improvement of the current EU chemicals regulatory framework, importantly REACH. Please return the filled questionnaire in WORD format (no hard copy) as soon as possible, to . For any questions please contact the contractor’s Project Manager Tim BECKER: by email to or by mobile: +358 40 773 8143.
