Summary

Regulation (EU) 2020/878 will amend the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 on 1 January 2021.

As Regulation (EU) 2020/878 will come into force after the current deadline for the end of the post-Brexit transition period, this legislation may not be brought into force in the UK.

What will change?

Regulation (EU) 2020/878 replaces Annex II to the REACH Regulation, which specifies information that must be included in safety data sheets.

Regulation (EU) 2020/878 makes the following changes to information required in safety data sheets:

  • Information requirements are updated to reflect the current version of the Global Harmonised System of classification and labelling for chemicals (GHS);
  • Relevant specific concentration limits, multiplying factors and acute toxicity estimates must be provided, where available;
  • An obligation to provide information on substances and mixtures with endocrine disrupting properties; and
  • Information must reflect requirements on nanoforms of substances.

Deadline for Updated Safety Data Sheets

Organisations required to prepare safety data sheets have until 31 December 2022 to update documents to reflect Regulation (EU) 2020/878.
