First substance evaluation decisions published

ECHA/NA/14/14

First ECHA decisions on substance evaluation are now available on ECHA's website. These are the decisions on 14 substances taken by ECHA based on evaluations carried out by Member States. Registrants are requested to submit further information on hazards and/or exposure.

Helsinki, 1 April 2014 - A decision on substance evaluation means that there is a need for further information to conclude on the concern on a substance. From the substances listed in the CoRAP for 2012 there were 32 substances for which the evaluating Member States originally proposed a draft decision. After the Member States' review and discussions and unanimous agreement in the Member State Committee , ECHA has taken final decisions on 14 substances.

Decisions are now available in the CoRAP section on ECHA's website for the following substances:

For some substances more than one decision is attached as in these cases some registrants of the substance were addressed separately for confidentiality reasons. Each decision defines a deadline by which the registrants subject to the decision must deliver the requested data in a IUCLID dossier update to ECHA. The evaluating Member State will then review the data and conclude on the risks and follow up actions, if deemed necessary.

In future, ECHA will continue publishing the decisions in batches without separate communications upon publication of each batch.
