ECHA urges better REACH dossier quality

Companies are being encouraged to proactively improve the quality of their dossiers on substances covered by EU chemicals legislation before the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has to take action against any shortcomings. The substances include agrochemical intermediates and co-formulants covered by the EU Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation. An ECHA screening programme late last year identified "frequent" shortcomings in substance identification. Registrants whose dossiers were picked up will receive a letter from the Agency in the first quarter of 2014 giving advice on how to address any problems. In addition, a webinar will be organised in the spring to explain common shortcomings in detail. Companies will be invited to update their dossiers by a pre-set target date before the ECHA initiates follow-up regulatory action such as a compliance check.
