Risk Management Options Analysis
Format of the RMO Analysis (RMOA)

The Member State preparing an RMOA will look at the existing regulatory provisions concerning the substance under EU or national legislation and look for relevant information pertaining to monitoring data. They will assess the uncertainty of the REACH Risk Characterisation as well as the likelihood that risks are actually controlled. The drafters of the RMOA may come to a conclusion about:

  • The need to reduce the risk of certain effects: Specific target groups, environmental compartments or routes of exposure
  • Uses of concern
  • Timing of action (from immediate to long term)
Do consider your own RMO suggestions focussing, for example, on a better implementation of existing regulations.

The primary source of data is the CSR, supplemented by any relevant source of data. It provides an overview of the data at hand related to

  • Hazard, emissions, exposures, risks
  • Uses and people concerned (workers e.g.)
  • Alternatives and R&D
