New regulation related to phase-in substances

A new regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/1692) related to the application of certain registration and data sharing provisions concerning phase-in substances has been published at the Official Journal.

One of the clarification provided by this new regulation concerns the calculation of the tonnage. After the 31st of December 2019, companies will need to calculate their manufactured or imported volume per calendar year for each of their substances.

Concerning the data sharing obligations, this new text recommends that registrants should use similar informal communication platforms to those used for registering phase-in substances.

It is also precised that after the 31st of December 2019, the pre-registration shall not longer be valid according to Article 28 REACH (“Duty to pre-register for phase-in substances”).
