National Inspectorates - Hungary

The authorities primarily responsible for the enforcement of REACH/CLP/BPR in Hungary are the Public Health Departments of the District Offices, gathered under twenty County based Government Offices which are reporting to the Prime Minister’s Office.

The work of the chemical safety inspectors is coordinated at regional level and supported by the Hungarian REACH, CLP and Biocides National Competent Authorities operating within the Ministry of Human Capacities (EMMI).

The company visits may take the form of both spot and targeted checks. In case of non-compliance the inspectors take a binding decision and/or impose a fine (chemical load penalty) on the companies concerned.

It is foreseen that other authorities will also be responsible for other aspects of the chemical regulations, such as environmental protection (National Inspectorate for Environment, Nature and Water), occupational safety (Hungarian Labour Inspectorate), consumer protection (National Authority for Consumer Protection) and customs control (Hungarian Customs and Finance Guard).
