Increased access to key information

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has launched a new online REACH Information Portal for Enforcement (RIPE), giving inspectors internet access to key information including REACH dossier details; tonnage supplied; production and use sites; intended uses; chemical classification and labelling; and more.
