From 2021 to 2023, ECHA conducted two campaigns on the update obligation of REACH registration dossiers under Article 22, REACH, as part of the REACH-En-Force projects. The first campaign examined 148 registrations of substances listed on Annex XIV, REACH. Only if the use of the downstream users is indicated in the registration dossier, they are allowed to use the substance.
The second campaign evaluated the correct indication of the harmonised classification according to the CLP Regulation in 541 registration dossiers.
A total of 57 registration dossiers were found to be deficient and even after requests from the auditors these deficiencies were not corrected in a timely manner. The companies concerned are reminded by the national authorities of the member states. If necessary, the registrants’ registration will be withdrawn and they will be ordered to pay an administrative fee.
The (planned) REACH En-Force projects can be viewed on the ECHA website.
