The EU Chemicals Legislation Finder (EUCLEF) is a free service helps companies to track their obligations across different EU laws. ECHA launched this service to bring clarity to companies, in particular to SMEs, which pieces of legislation apply to their substances.
Integrated into ECHA’s chemicals database, companies can use EUCLEF to navigate through the EU chemicals legislative framework and find information on how their substances are regulated across the EU. This will give businesses a better understanding of the obligations they might have so they can ensure they are legally on the market.
The first version of the finder covers legislation dealing with air and water quality, worker protection, pesticides, food contact materials, cosmetic products, toy safety, and many more. A further 16 pieces of legislation are planned to be added to EUCLEF in 2021. A regulatory support service has also been made available so that companies can ask questions about all the different EU chemicals legislation covered by EUCLEF.
EUCLEF is funded by the EU program for the competitiveness of enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises (COSME).
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is an Agency of the European Union implementing EU chemical regulations.
