In July 2020 the ECHA published two reports uncover both the direct and indirect effects of REACH in driving substitution
Replacing harmful chemicals with safer alternatives and greener technologies is strongly driven by regulation, with companies reporting that restrictions and authorisation are their main drivers for substitution. Companies are also motivated by customer demand and their own sustainability policies, with ECHA’s substitution strategy also indirectly boosting substitution activities.
The first report describes the „Impacts of REACH restrictions and authorisation on substitution in the EU“.
The second „Report on substitution-supporting activities in 2018-2019 and focus in 2020-21“ describes how ECHA has helped and intends to help companies overcome barriers.
