Over 500 REACH lead registrants share good practice

16
Sep '09
Over 500 companies – Lead Registrants and Candidate Lead Registrants – joined together in Brussels (and via webstream) to share best practice. The event, jointly organised by the European Commission and the European Chemicals Agency, brought together speakers from ten companies and associations to share their experience on taking the lead in developing joint registration dossiers for their chemical substances.

Companies intending to register the same substance have to work together in a Substance Information Exchange Forum (SIEF) to share data on the hazards and safe use of the substance and prepare a single registration dossier. Data sharing is crucial if unnecessary testing (including animal testing) is to be avoided and costs to industry minimised. The Lead Registrant role is crucial in that process. Lead Registrants were urged by the speakers to “dare to share” and to “be early, be early - at least 2 months” before the official deadline in submitting their dossiers.

Companies were informed also about further support to enable them to fulfil their roles – most notable of which is a series of targeted webinars – roughly one per month, between now and early summer 2010. The webinars will be run by experts from within ECHA and will be interactive. They are addressed to Lead Registrants who have notified themselves to ECHA. Further details can be found on ECHA's website.

Further exclusive services for Lead Registrants include direct access to ECHA's Helpdesk and an electronic discussion platform – the Lead Registrant Forum. ECHA responded to a number of requests from industry which ranged from providing clarity about the kinds of issues that were causing registration dossiers to fail through to practical steps that may be taken to cut red tape and speed up processes.

Geert Dancet, the Executive Director of ECHA promised to respond to the challenges and to “provide responses through our webinar programme and at our next Stakeholder's Day in Helsinki in late November”. He thanked the participants, and particularly the speakers ”for stepping up to the plate and taking on this important – and hopefully rewarding – task on behalf of their fellow companies. “This is not an easy role and yet you are showing the way through your pragmatism and commitment to the ultimate aim of the protection of human health and the environment”.
