COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2021/2204

of 13 December 2021

amending Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), as regards carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductive toxicant (CMR) substances

(Text with EEA relevance)

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)

Entries 28, 29 and 30 of Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 prohibit the placing on the market and use, for supply to the general public, of substances that are classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductive toxicant (CMR), categories 1A or 1B, and listed in Appendices 1 to 6 to that Annex and of mixtures containing such substances above specified concentrations.

(2)

Substances classified as CMR are listed in Part 3 of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council (2).

(3)

Appendices 1 to 6 to Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, as last amended by Commission Regulation (EU) 2020/2096 (3), do not yet reflect the new classifications of substances as CMR under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, as amended by Commission Delegated Regulations (EU) 2020/1182 (4) and (EU) 2021/849 (5). It is therefore appropriate to add the newly classified CMR substances of categories 1A or 1B listed in Delegated Regulations (EU) 2020/1182 and (EU) 2021/849 to Appendices 2, 4 and 6 to Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

(4)

The classification of substances listed in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/1182 will apply from 1 March 2022. The restriction introduced by this Regulation as regards substances classified as CMR category 1A or 1B by Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/1182 should therefore apply from 1 March 2022. The date of application does not prevent operators from applying the restrictions related to the CMR substances category 1A or 1B classified under Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/1182 earlier.

(5)

The classification of substances listed in Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/849 will apply from 17 December 2022. The restriction introduced by this Regulation as regards substances classified as CMR category 1A or 1B by Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/849 should therefore apply from 17 December 2022. The date of application does not prevent operators from applying the restrictions related to the CMR substances category 1A or 1B classified under Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/849 earlier.

(6)

Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 should therefore be amended accordingly.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 133(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
