Nordic enforcement project on give-away products

image of Nordic enforcement project on give-away products

The Nordic chemicals agencies have jointly controlled the Nordic market of give-away products. These products were controlled against the requirements of several EU-legislations (REACH Regulation, Toy Safety Directive, RoHS Directive, POPs Regulation and the Battery Directive).The results show that economic operators lack knowledge of the applicable requirements, as well as lacking understanding of the extent of their obligations. They are missing appropriate systems to comply with the rules. Nevertheless, the Nordic chemicals agencies have observed an interest from business organisations to be better at understanding and complying with the applicable rules. This joint enforcement project has also contributed to creating closer collaboration between the Nordic chemicals agencies resulting in sharing more information and ensuring better resource efficiency.

Analysis of the results

Based on the controls carried out in this project, our assessment is that on average companies selling give-away products have little knowledge of the applicable regulations. This lack of knowledge includes both the requirements to chemicals and the extent of companies’ responsibility according to European law.
