The EU’s enforcement authorities plan to inspect how safety information regarding hazardous chemicals is collected, compiled, and communicated in the supply chain and then how the information is followed at workplaces. The reason for these inspections is to increase safety measures and awareness for workers who come into contact with hazardous chemicals, especially workers who deal with substances of very high concern (SVHCs).
Throughout 2017 inspectors will check to see if extended safety data sheets are in line with chemical safety reports that substance manufacturers prepare. Inspectors will also check to see if workers comply with safety information provided at their workplaces. The inspectors will then generate a report on the results, which will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.
