LIFE project – AskREACH launched
The German Environment Agency (UBA) recently launched the EU LIFE project AskREACH with the aim of raising awareness of the REACH consumer right among the European population. This collaborative project will involve 20 project partners from 13 EU Member States. The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is one of these partners.
AskREACH has the following objectives:
- Raising consumer awareness on SVHC in articles, enabling consumers to make responsible purchasing decisions,
- Raising supplier awareness on compliance with REACH information duties,
- Improving the information flow on SVHC between suppliers and consumers,
- The improvement of supply chain communication processes that ultimately aim at substituting SVHC in articles.
A website with information on the progress and results of the project is expected to be available in March 2018.
