Data to prevent regrettable substitution

The data collected through the implementation of the REACH, CLP and Biocidal Products regulations can be of great help in the assessment of hazard and risk of alternatives. 

Under REACH, registrants are required to provide information on the substances manufactured in or imported into the EU. In addition, ECHA may request additional information to clarify a concern over a substance.

The data, accessible through ECHA’s website, can facilitate the safe use of chemicals and substitution activities.

Information on biocidal substances or products collected under the Biocidal Products Regulation.

ECHA, together with the Member States, has started paying increasing attention to structural similarity between substances. It has also started to approach substances in groups to avoid regrettable substitution. ECHA will continue to improve the ways in which it uses and disseminates the key information on registered chemicals, particularly from the perspective of substitution of chemicals of concern.
