In 2015 the European court of justice made a clarification to the EU regulation which is for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). The European court of justice skipped the previous opinion on Art. 33 from ECHA and decided that declaration of single articles (e.g. for a profile) has to be “forwarded” with the article made of articles (e.g. window). The previous interpretation of the REACH declaration for an article made of articles is no longer applicable.
EuroWindoor decided in the Directing Council meeting on July 6th, 2016 in Amsterdam to publish the information “REACH – fast facts” which has been elaborated on basis of a proposal from the German member associations VFF and BF. Beside a general overview on REACH the focus of the document is on duties and recommendations for downstream users.
