The new guidance document describes the socio-economic analysis under the REACH restriction procedure.
The document provides technical guidance on how to undertake socio-economic analysis (SEA) as part of a proposal to restrict the manufacturing, placing on the market and/or use of a substance in accordance with art69 of REACH.
In the context of REACH, SEA is an approach used to describe and to analyse all relevant impacts (both positive and negative effects) of imposing a restriction compared to continued use. It can also facilitate an assessment of whether the proposed Community-wide restriction is the most appropriate action as compared to other risk management option.
More detailed information and practical assistance can be found in the RIP.
