ECHA registers 9030 dossiers under REACH
Sep '13
REACH registration numbers have been granted to 9,030 dossiers that were submitted by the second REACH registration deadline on 31 May 2013. This corresponds to 2,998 more substances being registered under REACH.
According to the REACH Regulation, ECHA has three months to perform completeness checks on all registrations for phase-in substances submitted in the last two months before the registration deadline. 
The aim of the completeness check is to ensure that all required elements have been included in the registration dossier. The three-month period ended on 31 August and ECHA has managed to perform the completeness check for all dossiers submitted by the second REACH registration deadline.
The dossiers that have not received a registration number are cases where the registrant has to resubmit their dossier following a request for further information from ECHA and cases which will be rejected because of non-payment of the related fees.
Companies submitted in total 770 testing proposals in 376 dossiers. Of those, 563 were proposals to test on animals in order to fulfil the REACH information requirements listed in Annex IX. The Agency will evaluate all dossiers which include testing proposals relevant to Annex IX by 1 June 2016. All tests proposed on vertebrate animals will be subject to public consultation.
In addition, the Agency received 301 confidentiality requests in 254 dossiers. The majority of claims concerned safety data sheet information, which includes the name of the company, the registration number and information on the uses of the substance. 
ECHA will assess all confidentiality claims before accepting them. The non-confidential information from all of the 2013 registrations will be added to the registered substances online database by the end of the year.
By the end of August, ECHA has received 45 million euros in registration fees from companies submitting dossiers for the 2013 deadline. ECHA's estimation for such fees in its 2013 budget was 31 million euros.
Registrants are reminded to maintain and update their dossiers also after receiving the registration number, for example when new information is available. Companies should also keep checking their REACH-IT account for any communication from ECHA.
