Revised completeness check to be launched in April 2020
ECHA has planned to extend the completeness check to the chemical safety report. The decision to extend the completeness check to the chemical safety report has been done to ensure they contain all the elements required under REACH.
The decision to cover the chemical safety report in the completeness check also supports ECHA’s regulatory strategy, which foresees requests under evaluation to mainly be used for obtaining hazard information. Extending the completeness check to the chemical safety report is expected to enable better prioritisation of substances for regulatory action by authorities, enhance the dissemination of use information and improve the starting point for appropriate supply chain communication.
The revised completeness check will be launched with the release of a new version of IUCLID in April 2020 and will apply to both new registrations and updates of existing ones.
More explicit checks on key hazard endpoints will also be included in the revision.
