ECHA Publishes Evaluation Report
describes the progress the Agency has made in evaluating REACH registration dossiers in 2009
03.03.2010 - In 2009 the European CHemicals Agency (ECHA) received 406 complete registration dossiers and initiated evaluation of 35 of them (27 compliance checks, 8 examinations of testing proposals). Fourteen compliance checks were concluded: in seven cases a letter was sent to the registrant and in another seven cases the compliance check was closed without further action. The first ECHA decision on a testing proposal was adopted on 3 December 2009 (ECHA/NA/09/33).
In the report ECHA also listed the key findings related to the most common problems found in the submitted dossiers. Companies are therefore urged to go through the list of recommendations in this report. They are also advised to thoroughly analyse the legal requirements and the relevant guidance or manuals to improve the quality of the dossiers. The webinars are a useful introduction to these more comprehensive documents.
