ECHA adds online inquiry submission functionality to REACH-IT
Apr '09
ECHA has updated REACH-IT by adding an online inquiry submission functionality and a functionality to change legal entity names in the system. Documentation is also published to assist companies with the online inquiry and the change in legal entity name.

In addition, REACH-IT can now be accessed by Member States Competent Authorities that fulfill ECHA's standard security requirements ECHA has published an Industry User Manual outlining the checks that the Agency makes immediately after a dossier has been received.

On 7 April a new version of REACH-IT was successfully installed after undergoing a long period of testing. It further completes the system and improves its performance. REACH-IT has now the ability to be remotely accessible by Member States Competent Authorities through secure network connections.

Before getting access, these authorities will need to commit to and implement ECHA's standard security requirements, which are prepared by ECHA's Security Officers Network and submitted for approval to the forthcoming Management Board meeting.

The most important new functionalities for industry are the creation and submission of inquiries online. The new online functionality for inquiries is simple to use. It enables the creation and submission of inquiries directly online via REACH-IT.

The earlier method of creating an inquiry first in IUCLID 5 and then submit it via REACH-IT will remain operational. A new REACH-IT Industry User Manual 11 (Online dossier creation and submission for inquiries) is available on ECHA website to help companies with the new functionality.

Change of names:
This release will also allow companies to change their name in REACH-IT. Changes of legal personality will be covered in the next release.

A summary clarifying the duties of pre-registrants, registrants, PPORD notifiers and inquirers in cases where they change their name or legal personality is available in a REACH-IT Fact Sheet.

How to submit a dossier successfully:
Thanks to feedback from REACH-IT users, ECHA has published a REACH-IT Data Submission
Manual 8 outlining the checks that the Agency makes immediately after a dossier has been submitted by a company to ensure that it can be processed.

The document applies to registration, inquiry and PPORD (product and process orientated research and development) submissions and is designed to ensure that companies can successfully submit a dossier via REACH-IT.

We recommend that companies submitting dossiers to ECHA read the new Manual on Dossier Submission Business Rules document in conjunction with 'Data Submission Manual 4: How to submit a valid dossier to ECHA and complete the dossier header.

News on the REACH-IT home page:
The home page of REACH-IT provides now short REACH-IT related news and messages. These will inform the users about changes made in the application and forthcoming maintenance breaks.

Please click here; if you have questions in relation to your submission/s please send them by using the REACH-IT Enquiry on specific submission to ECHA form.
