Austrian ChemVerbotsV (Restriction list)

This article has been translated with machine translation.  

About the list

The list is included as standard for all Austrian systems. 

This list shows if you have products that are subject to restrictions or prohibition according to Austrian law. 

The regulation aims to control and limit the user of certain harmful substances, to protect the environment and the health of the public. 

The list could be obtained at BGBl. II Nr. 477/2003, and was mostly revoked by BGBl. II Nr. 179/2018 with a couple of exceptions for specific paragraphs. 

This list in its current form contains substances, which are restricted or prohibited on a national level, but are not subject to REACH annex XVII at the moment. 

I have products on the list - what should I do?

If you see that you have products inventoried in iChemistry that match the restriction list, you can start by examining which substance is causing the matching and in what concentration that substance is in the product.

To do this, go to the product's iSafe >Restriction- and prohibition lists and see the substance name under Reason. Then click on Show composition (or section 3 in the SDS) to see the concentration level for that substance. This way you see if the substance that causes the matching is present in high concentrations in your chemical product or not. Compare the concentration with the limit values in the directive.

After that, you'll need to make an assessment if you'll need to substitute the product or adapt the risk assessment in some way. Should you need any help, please contact your account manager or send an e-mail to
