Registry of Intentions

Registry of Intentions

ECHA (at the request of the Commission) or Member States may prepare dossiers for the identification of substances of very high concern (SVHCs) and dossiers proposing restrictions (Annex XV of REACH). Dossiers proposing harmonised classification and labelling of substances may be prepared by MSCAs and manufacturers, importers or downstream users.

The aim of the public Registry of Intentions (RoI) is to make interested parties aware of the substances for which a CLH, SVHC or restriction dossier is intended to be submitted. This therefore gives the interested parties time to prepare for commenting later in the respective process. It also avoids duplication of work and encourages cooperation between potential dossier submitters.

Through the registry, you can check whether another dossier submitter has worked on an Annex XV or CLH dossier for a specific substance in the past or is currently preparing a dossier on the substance. It should be noted that for the restrictions process there is a legal requirement for the Member State to notify its intention to prepare an Annex XV restriction dossier to the Agency (Article 69(5) REACH).

Following the successful submission of the dossiers, a process of public consultation is started, in which concerned parties are invited to comment on the proposal. Based on the comments received during the public consultation, the proposals are discussed in the respective Committees (Risk Assessment Committee for CLH and restrictions, the Committee for Socio-economic Analysis for restrictions, and the Member State Committee for SVHCs).

Interested parties are therefore recommended to regularly consult the RoI, the Public Consultation pages and the RAC, SEAC and MSC pages, to follow the processing of the dossier.

The Registry of Intentions is divided into three separate sections:
