ECHA to send dossier evaluation decisions in 2019 to member registrants

It has been announced that as of 1 January 2019, ECHA will send its dossier evaluation decisions to all non-compliant registrants of a substance, in addition to its current practice of addressing mainly lead registrants.

They have advised that registrants need to take a proactive role to ensure they are ready for the change, which will also see a more streamlined approach, providing more focused justifications for the information requested and clearer information on the legal obligations of registrants.

Ensure you keep your dossier up to date by considering these key points:
Ensure that your contact details are up to date both in REACH-IT and in your joint submission, so that you can always be reached regarding your registration.

  • Changes to your production or import volumes, whether an increase or decrease
  • New or obsolete uses
  • New or changed measures, ensuring safe use
  • Your transported or on-site isolated intermediate status
  • New data on the intrinsic properties of your substance

Following the substance information and exchange forum (SIEFs) ceasing in June 2018, the latest change aims to support the collaboration and communication between registrants on joint submissions.
