Deadline Clarification for the REACH Registration Dossiers

Deadline Clarification for the REACH Registration Dossiers

Friday, October 23, 2020

The European Commission has clarified the meaning of the “without undue delay” requirement regarding the update of #REACH registration dossiers.

The update will enter into force in December 2020 and will apply the following requirements:

  • A deadline of three months applies for administrative updates, such as a change in a registrant’s status or identity.
  • A deadline of six, nine or 12 months applies for more complex updates, for example when the classification and labelling of a substance without a harmonised classification changes, or there are changes in the chemical safety report or guidance on safe use.
  • When there are multiple reasons for updating a registration, only one submission is required and the longest deadline applies.
  • A deadline of three months applies to inform that the manufacture or import of a substance has ceased.

These deadlines also apply for changes to substances previously notified under the Dangerous Substances Directive (NONS).
