THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), establishing a European Chemicals Agency, amending Directive 1999/45/EC and repealing Council Regulation (EEC) No 793/93 and Commission Regulation (EC) No 1488/94 as well as Council Directive 76/769/EEC and Commission Directives 91/155/EEC, 93/67/EEC, 93/105/EC and 2000/21/EC (1), and in particular Article 68(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, in its entries 28 to 30, prohibits the sale to the general public of substances that are classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductive toxicant (CMR), categories 1A or 1B or of mixtures containing them in concentration above specified concentration limits. The substances concerned are listed in Appendices 1 to 6 to Annex XVII.

(2)

Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) was amended by Commission Regulations (EU) No 618/2012 (3) and (EU) No 944/2013 (4) for the purposes of its adaptation to technical and scientific progress, in order to update or include a number of new harmonised classifications of CMR substances.

(3)

Regulation (EU) No 618/2012 establishes a new harmonised classification for the following substances: indium phosphide has been classified as carcinogenic 1B, trixylyl phosphate and 4-tert-butylbenzoic acid have been classified as reproductive toxicant 1B.

(4)

Regulation (EU) No 944/2013 establishes a new harmonised classification for the following substances: [pitch, coal tar, high-temp.] has been classified as carcinogenic 1A; gallium arsenide has been classified as carcinogenic 1B; [pitch, coal tar, high-temp.] has been classified as mutagenic 1B; [pitch, coal tar, high-temp.], epoxiconazole (ISO), nitrobenzene, dihexyl phthalate, N-ethyl-2-pyrrolidone, ammoniumpentadecafluorooctanoate, perfluorooctanoic acid and 2-ethylhexyl 10-ethyl-4,4-dioctyl-7-oxo-8-oxa-3,5-dithia-4-stannatetradecanoate have been classified as reproductive toxicant 1B.

(5)

As operators may apply the harmonised classifications set out in Part 3 of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 at an earlier date, they should be able to apply the provisions of this Regulation earlier, on a voluntary basis.

(6)

Appendices 1 to 6 to Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 should be amended accordingly.
