The Board of Appeal’s decision in case A-011-2018 has clarified that Annex IX, Section 9.1, Column 2 to REACH does not allow registrants to omit submitting information on long term toxicity to fish under Column 1. Instead, it must be understood as a trigger for providing further information on long-term aquatic toxicity depending on the properties of the substance.
