Numerous comments were received and taken into account in the revision of the guidance.

ECHA and EFSA now invite all interested parties to comment on the updated draft guidance by using the dedicated web form below. The deadline for providing comments is 31 January 2018.

All received comments will be taken into consideration in finalising the guidance, which is scheduled to be available by June 2018.
