REACH REFIT Evaluation 2017 announced


On October 28 2016, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for the Environment (DG ENV) announced the latest REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) Regulation evaluation under REFIT.


The REACH Regulation includes the obligation for a review every 5 years to monitor progress in the achievement of its objectives. The second REACH Review, due in 2017, is being carried out in parallel with the fitness check on the most relevant chemicals legislation excluding REACH.


The REACH REFIT evaluation (REACH Review 2017) will build on the findings of the first REACH Review (published in 2013) and examine key developments since then. The REACH REFIT evaluation (REACH review 2017), is carried out in line with the principles of Better Regulation and will cover the five compulsory evaluation criteria: effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence and EU added value.


The Roadmap describes in detail how the REACH REFIT evaluation (REACH Review 2017) is being carried out.
