REACH dossiers found lacking

According to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) REACH evaluation report for 2014, a considerable number of the registration dossiers submitted require improvement ahead of the deadline in 2018.

Of the 283 compliance check evaluations carried over from 2013 or opened during 2014, ECHA requested more information from registrants in 172 cases. Most of the required additional details related to exposure assessment and risk characterisation, as well as substance identity, and studies into sub-chronic toxicity, pre-natal developmental toxicity and physicochemical properties. In follow-up evaluations, only 72 per cent of the registrants had complied with these requests.

ECHA developed a new compliance check strategy in 2014. This focuses on substances with the biggest potential health and environmental impacts.
