COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2023/1132

of 8 June 2023

amending Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductive toxicant substances subject to restrictions

(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 2 and 6 to Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 should be amended in order to reflect the new classification of substances as CMR in Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 as amended by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/692 (3). It is therefore appropriate to insert the newly classified CMR substances of categories 1A and 1B in Appendices 2 and 6 to Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

(4)

The new classification of substances in Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 will apply from 1 December 2023. The restriction introduced by this Regulation as regards the substances classified by Regulation (EU) 2022/692 as CMR category 1A or 1B should therefore apply from the same date. The date of application does not prevent operators from applying the restrictions related to the CMR substances of category 1A or 1B listed in the Annex to Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/692 earlier.

(5)

A number of group entries are included in Part 3 of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. In some cases, there are classification requirements for specific substances that would be covered by the group entry. In such cases a specific entry is included in Part 3 of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 for the substance and the group entry in that Regulation is then annotated with the phrase ‘except those specified elsewhere in this Annex’. The incorporation of those substances in Appendices 1 to 6 of Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 thus needs to reflect that annotation referring to Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. However, the text in the entries with index numbers 033-005-00-1, 050-008-00-3, 082-001-00-6, 609-026-00-2 and 650-017-00-8 seems to refer to an Annex to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 instead of Annex VI to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. Those entries should therefore be adapted accordingly.

(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:

Article 1

Annex XVII to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 is amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

This Regulation shall enter into force on the twentieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Points (2) and (5) of the Annex shall apply from 1 December 2023.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 8 June 2023.

For the Commission

The President

Ursula VON DER LEYEN
