ECHA updates tools to enforce ‘one substance, one registration’ principle

27 January 2016

The Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/9 of 5 January 2016 on joint submission of data and data-sharing came into force on 26 January 2016. The Implementing Regulation requires that ECHA ensure all companies registering the same substance are part of the same registration.

To facilitate this ECHA has updated REACH-IT and, as of 27 January 2016, prospective registrants will no longer be able to submit a separate registration dossier if there is an existing registration for the substance.

If a separate registration dossier is submitted, it will be rejected at the 'business rules' step of the submission. This means that, in line with the requirements of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH) and Implementing Regulation 2016/9, where there is more than one registrant for a substance, a joint submission will always need to be created and negotiated between the registrants.

ECHA will be revising guidance documents and other supporting material to reflect these changes.

If you have any questions about how these changes may affect your registration plans, contact us.
