REACH Restrictions

Restrictions are regulatory measures to protect human health and the environment from unacceptable risks posed by chemicals. Restrictions may limit or ban the manufacture, placing on the market or use of a substance.

A restriction can apply to any substance on its own, in a mixture or in an article, including those that do not require registration.

Restrictions setting out conditions for the placing on the market of substances apply to both domestic production and imports.
