Evaluation activities sped up by assessing chemicals in groups

Checking similar chemicals in groups has helped ECHA to select substances more efficiently for assessment.

In 2020, ECHA checked 1 900 chemicals to identify a need for further assessment. Registrations for 258 chemicals were also checked for compliance with the REACH requirements. Better quality safety data from companies is still needed to clarify the long-term effects of chemicals.
