ECHA releases list of pre-registered substances

19
Dec '08
During the six month period from 1 June to 1 December 2008, ECHA received about 2.75 million pre-registrations for about 150,000 substances. As provided by the REACH regulation, ECHA published today the list of pre-registered substances, i.e. before 1 January 2009. The pre-registrations cover all the EU “existing substances” (EINECS) and the list of notified new substances (ELINCS), together about 105,000 substances.

The remainders of the substances on the list are not in these inventories and are currently being screened. The screening process will continue beyond 1 January 2009 and ECHA will update the list as the checking progresses. Companies are reminded that all of the preregistered substances on the list may not fall within the scope of REACH, and some of them may have been registered without taking into account the volume trigger set by the regulation for manufacturing or importing.

During the screening process ECHA removes those pre-registrations that are in all evidence not substances (for example, pre-registrations that are articles, such as “shoes”). ECHA also merges substances that are synonyms into one pre-SIEF. Moreover, pre-registrations not submitted by EU/EEA companies will be deleted. The screening will result in fewer substances on the list and changes to the number of companies in the pre-SIEFs.

The potential registrants in a pre-SIEF will first ensure that their substance is the same in order to establish the Substance Information Exchange Fora (SIEFs). Data sharing under REACH may take place in the SIEFs as well as the preparation of joint submission of registration dossier.
