Play • 18 min

Katja Vom Hofe, the Chair of the Enforcement Forum joins us to shed light on the discussions of the Forum in their November meeting.

We talk about: 

  • The next REACH enforcement project that will investigate how companies fulfil their registration, authorisation and restriction obligations for products and chemicals they import from outside the EU. 
  • The publication of the Forum's future advice on the enforceability of new restriction proposals under REACH.
  • Opportunities for expanding the role of the Forum and strengthening the control of imports as well as the enforceability of REACH restrictions, for example, in textiles or on the use of lead gunshot in wetlands as well as analytical methods relevant for the control of REACH duties.
