ECHA to conduct workshop to assist in 'SIEF' activities

16
Jul '09
ECHA is currently sending out invitations to Lead Registrants to participate in a dedicated “Lead Registrant Workshop” to be held on 11 September in Brussels. This workshop is specifically aimed at promoting means that will assist Lead Registrants in their SIEF activities.

Topics to be discussed in the workshop will cover best practices in establishing and managing SIEFs, the preparation of registration dossiers and specific feedback on information requirements. Lead Registrants are encouraged to inform ECHA of their nomination in order to benefit from this supporting activity.

As part of its ongoing SIEF awareness campaign ECHA is preparing a special service for Lead Registrants. One of the upcoming events in this campaign is a Lead Registrant workshop. However, to benefit from the workshop and the special service, ECHA encourages Lead Registrants to identify themselves and to register through the ECHA website.

Over the past three months close to 650 Lead Registrants have informed the Agency of their nomination via ECHA's homepage. Although their number is constantly increasing, it still does not match the higher number of SIEFs that are expected to submit their joint dossiers by the first registration deadline (30 November 2010).

ECHA therefore would like to remind companies of the urgency to get their SIEFs established as soon as possible and to inform the Agency of the nomination of the Lead Registrant within each SIEF. Registering as Lead Registrant not only ensures that your company will become eligible for dedicated assistance but also helps ECHA identify the specific problems that you might encounter in your SIEF.

Furthermore, by informing ECHA of the progress made within your SIEF you can help the Agency in better anticipating the rate of submissions of registration dossiers ahead of the next registration deadline.

It is important to realise that companies that notify the Agency of their status as Lead Registrant do not face any further liabilities beyond their responsibilities already laid down by the REACH Regulation. However, in case the role of Lead Registrant is transferred to another company, ECHA would appreciate to be informed of such a change.
