REACH-IT update at the end of April

ECHA’s dossier submission tool, REACH-IT, will be updated on 25 April. The update will focus mainly on increasing the capacity of the system to handle the large number of dossiers expected for the 2018 deadline. It also includes a new submission type for the alternative chemical name requests under the CLP Regulation.

To manage the update, ECHA will close REACH-IT from Thursday 20 April at 14.00 (EET) to Tuesday 25 April at 10.00 (EET). Regulatory deadlines that may affect companies during the closing period (e.g. completeness check deadlines) will be moved to 25 April.

ECHA advices registrants to pay attention to their messages in REACH-IT in the days before the closure, in particular those that are undergoing a dossier evaluation or substance evaluation assessment.
