REACH-IT only means to pre-register
Nov '08
ECHA would like to stress that REACH-IT is the only means specified by the Agency for companies to submit valid pre-registrations. The only route which can be used for pre-registering substances is the REACH–IT system. In order to pre-register, companies have to sign up to the REACH-IT portal on the ECHA website.

The pre-registration and REACH-IT sections of the ECHA website give detailed information on how to submit. Today ECHA has again increased the capacity of REACH-IT and further enhanced the performance, especially for bulk pre-registrations. These modifications have substantially improved the availability and speed of the system but it may still exhibit slow response times during peak hours.

Companies experiencing this are advised to be patient and continue with their submission where possible. In addition, companies wishing to minimize the time spent in preregistering are advised to consider submitting their pre-registrations outside of peak hours.

Companies should also remember that bulk pre-registration is the fastest method for submitting many substances which have EC numbers. ECHA reminds companies that the pre-registration deadline of December 1st, set out in the REACH Regulation, cannot be extended by ECHA. In order to guarantee that industry can preregister by 1 December 2008, ECHA has developed a back-up submission procedure.

This procedure will be put in place only if REACH-IT is not able to absorb the influx of last-minute submissions during the final phase of pre-registration. In that case, the submission of preregistrations directly via a web form on the ECHA website would be enabled for companies that have already signed up in REACH-IT and obtained a user account.

As pre-registration by REACH-IT is the only way to rapidly receive pre-registration numbers and join the pre-SIEF, ECHA advises companies not to wait for the last day but to pre-register via REACH-IT over the coming week.
