The purpose of this evaluation is to assess whether the current EU legislative framework for FCMs is fit for purpose and delivers as expected. It will assess the overall effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, coherence including coherence with other chemicals and food legislation, and EU added value of the FCM Regulation. The evaluation will cover the functioning of the FCM Regulation in its entirety and the rules and tools provided for by this legislation applicable in the European Union. It will also examine the situation concerning materials for which there are no EU specific measures and which are subject to national measures which are permitted.
