REACH fact sheet on 'Substance Information Exchange Fora'

ECHA has published a REACH Fact Sheet providing registrants top tips on how to get started in SIEFs (Substance Information Exchange Fora).

SIEFs have a critical role within REACH and ECHA wants to do what it can to try to ensure that they succeed in sharing and assessing data as well as preparing the common parts of the registration.

At the same time, the Agency would like to remind companies that SIEFS are independent – they are not “owned” by ECHA.

SIEFs are formed by companies that intend to register the same substance. One of their tasks is to facilitate data sharing between the companies, and hence avoid duplication of studies and unnecessary animal testing.

Industry has made ECHA aware that there have been difficulties in getting some SIEFs started and potential problems with communication between members.

In response, ECHA recently chaired a meeting of industry associations and staff from the commission. The meeting sought to discuss the problems that had arisen, clarify the requirements of SIEF members and help to ensure sharing of best practice.

The linked fact sheet is a result of the meeting and presents the key advice that arose from it. If you have pre-registered a substance that you intend to register, it is really important that you get involved in the most appropriate SIEF for your substance as soon as possible. The deadlines are tight. So if you have not started, start now.

Please note that the deadlines for submission of registrations are laid down in the REACH regulation and ECHA does not have the power to change them. In practice this means that if you don't have a valid registration by the appropriate deadline, your manufacture or import would need to cease.
