ERJ staff report (DS)
Brussels - Representatives of the world's auto makers have updated their guidelines on the EU REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals) legislation as it applies to the automotive segment.
The automotive Task Force on REACH (TF-REACH) published on 1 June 2012, version 3.1 of the Automotive Industry Guideline on REACH (AIG). The update focusses on amendments of the chapters on REACH Notification and the flowcharts section â€œREACH Compliance - A step by step processâ€ of version 3.0.
Whereas version 2 of the AIG focused on pre-registration and communication in the supply chain, version 3 is more comprehensive, providing automotive industry recommendations on numerous aspects of the REACH Regulation. Besides a new chapter on CLP Notification, version 3 contains advice regarding the Notification of substances in articles, Authorisation and Restriction procedures as well as downstream user obligations in regard to Safety Data Sheets.
The AIG is translated into Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Korean, so as to assist the global automotive supply chain in understanding their REACH obligations while also providing useful recommendations.
