Upcoming changes to REACH information requirements

The European Commission has revised certain information requirements for registering chemicals under REACH (Regulation (EU) 2021/979 published the 18 June 2021). The changes will start to apply in early 2022 and companies need to start preparing. ECHA will publish more advice in late 2021.

The update of the REACH annexes clarifies the information companies need to submit in their registrations and makes ECHA’s evaluation practices more transparent and predictable. The law comes into effect on 8 July 2021 and will apply from 8 January 2022.

More information can be found in ECHA’s news release.
