Support information

Restriction report and annexes
Remarks ECHA held a call for evidence to obtain information for assessment in preparing the Annex XV dossier: https://echa.europa.eu/previous-calls-for-comments-and-evidence. This information will be used, amongst other issues, to determine if any derogations are required for the potential restriction as these cannot be proposed without adequate risk and socio-economic information. If a derogation is not proposed by the Dossier Submitter then it will be incumbent on the relevant stakeholders to do so during any public consultation process with a full risk and socio-economic justification accompanying it.
