20% noncompliance was reported by ECHA for April-May for 800 companies.  Problems:

  • no pre-registration or registration of manufactured or imported chemicals
  • incorrect information on the pre-registration
  • SDS were missing entirely
  • SDS were in the wrong format or languages

Enforcement ranged from “blame and shame” to administrative orders to fines and 3 criminal complaints.  REACH is pretty easy to inspect for compliance.  Know what you are required to do and don’t dawdle.
