In April 2017 ECHA’s Guidance on requirements for substances in articles (version 4.0) was sent to for CARACAL consultation, meaning it has been taken a step further for publication. The Guidance will be used to support OA5 (Once An Article Always An Article) communication under Article 33 of REACH. For more information visit ECHA’s website at:
