ECHA publishes Evaluation report

The Evaluation Report describes the progress the Agency has made in evaluating REACH registration dossiers in 2009. The report also provides recommendations to registrants so that they can improve the quality of their dossiers.

In 2009 the Agency received 406 complete registration dossiers and initiated evaluation of 35 of them (27 compliance checks, 8 examinations of testing proposals). Fourteen compliance checks were concluded: in seven cases a letter was sent to the registrant and in another seven cases the compliance check was closed without further action. The first ECHA decision on a testing proposal was adopted on 3 December 2009 (ECHA/NA/09/33).

In the report ECHA also listed the key findings related to the most common problems found in the submitted dossiers. Companies are therefore urged to go through the list of recommendations in this report. They are also advised to thoroughly analyse the legal requirements and the relevant guidance or manuals to improve the quality of the dossiers. The webinars are a useful introduction to these more comprehensive documents.

REACH provides for three different evaluation processes, namely the compliance check, the examination of testing proposals and the substance evaluation. In a compliance check the Agency examines the quality and adequacy of data provided by the registrant and may require further information to bring the dossier in compliance with information requirements in REACH. Examination of testing proposals aims to avoid unnecessary animal testing. The Agency decides whether testing is necessary, and may then provide permission for tests to be performed. The third evaluation process, substance evaluation, is launched when there is a suspicion that certain uses of a substance may cause harm to human health or the environment. The Member States carry out the scientific assessment required for substance evaluation.
