REACH Registrations – ECHA will start checking both new registrations and updates to existing ones against the revised requirements.
ECHA carries out a completeness check on each incoming registration as set out in Article 20(2) of the REACH Regulation.
The new and amended checks will take effect as of 1 May 2023 and will apply to both new registrations and updates of existing ones. Registrants should, therefore, prepare for the changes as registrations submitted before may no longer pass the completeness check.
The new and amended checks concern:
- Substance identity: ensuring correct and consistent identification of a substance’s boundary composition and its constituents and additives based on clarifications made to Annex VI.
- Standard information requirements based on Annexes VII-XI: supporting registrants in reporting information for endpoints concerning mutagenicity, degradation and aquatic toxicity based on Annex VII-XI information requirements. Registrants adding a new weight-of-evidence adaptation will be prompted to provide arguments for the approach in a more structured format.
