50% more REACH dossiers checked for compliance in 2019

In 2019, ECHA increased the number of checks carried out on companies’ chemical safety data by 50%.

Important safety data has been requested to clarify long-term effects of chemicals on the human health and the environment, including those affecting reproduction and causing genetic mutations. Decisions to make the registration compliant were sent to all registrants of the chemical – a change to the earlier practice where only the lead registrant was contacted. This contributed to a better collaboration among co-registrants.
