The ECHA claims that the majority of the companies under observation don’t respect the REACH bounds

At the beginning of September 2013 the European Chemical Agency published a report pointing out that the 67% of the companies inspected - in the 29 European countries participating in the REACH and CLP initiative - were non-compliant. However, the research shows some improvements on the last REACH enforcement project, but highlights downstream users’ lack of knowledge concerning their obligations.
