End of year break

PLEASE NOTE: due to exceptional circumstances, ECHA may take longer to process submitted information.

ECHA is currently relocating to new premises and will be closed from 21 December 2019 to 6 January 2020. Due to these exceptional circumstances, information that is submitted shortly before and during this time will only be read from 7 January onwards, and its processing time may take a few more days than usual.

With regard to the technical completeness check, ECHA may not be able to perform the check within three weeks of the submission date of your dossier [Article 20(2) of REACH].

Based on Article 21 of REACH, a registrant may start or continue the manufacture or import of a substance or production or import of an article, if there is no indication to the contrary from the Agency within the three weeks after the submission date.

However, this is without prejudice to Article 20(2), which requires registration dossiers to be complete. In the case where it may exceptionally not be possible to perform the technical completeness check in due time, ECHA reserves the right to get back to you as soon as the completeness check can be performed if the dossier is incomplete. In this case, ECHA will inform you as to what further information is required to complete the registration. You will be requested to update the dossier accordingly within a reasonable deadline.

Online dossier not to be used to submit new member registrations

The REACH-IT online dossier tool for preparing joint submission member registrations is not being updated with the latest IUCLID version. This may lead to completeness check failures, e.g. when preparing a dossier covering substances in the nanoform.

For new registrations, please consider using one of the other tools offered by the Agency, such as the maintenance-free IUCLID 6 Cloud.

Rules for registration of phase-in substances clarified

The Commission has published the Implementing Regulation clarifying which conditions stipulated in REACH for phase-in substances will no longer apply and by when. Please see the news on ECHA website:

-    You need to register before manufacturing or importing
-    Transitional period for phase-in substances
-    Practical advice about changes in registration

New version of IUCLID to support the Implementing Regulation has been published:
