ECHA outlines plans for REACH safety reports

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has outlined its planned actions to improve the chemical safety reports and safety data sheets required by the EU Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation. The Regulation came into force in 2008 and includes agrochemical intermediates and co-formulants (Agrow No 513, p 7). The ECHA's "roadmap" is a collaborative effort with stakeholders and the Agency is calling for more companies to get involved. The chemical safety documents provide information on the safe use of substances and mixtures for users, authorities and registrants. The ECHA has set a deadline of 2018 for its programme to improve the generation and communication of exposure scenarios for the different uses of substances and mixtures. The aim is to improve clarity and accuracy of the information, and to help industry update existing data. Planned actions include: achieving a better understanding among stakeholders of the purpose and use of the documents; and providing more support for formulators and users on how to interpret and make the best use of the information.
