An updated version of REACH-IT will be released by the end of April 2017. After the release, all alternative chemical name request dossiers (Article 24 of CLP), including updated dossiers requested by ECHA, must be submitted using REACH-IT.

ECHA will conduct a study to examine the challenges and incentives for updating dossiers and to identify best practice that could help companies improve their data.

The European Commission is processing draft implementing decisions requesting registrants to update their dossiers with information relating to the extended one-generation reproductive toxicity study (EOGRTS).

A new document on using read-across for multi-constituent and unknown or variable composition, complex reaction products or biological materials (UVCB) substances describes key issues for assessing and addressing the complexity of read-across approaches for these substances.

ECHA is looking for comments on its proposal to include seven new substances in the REACH Authorisation List.

To benefit from the extended deadline for registering existing, low volume chemicals by the last REACH registration deadline, you need to have pre-registered your substance with ECHA.
