Authorities to focus on identifying substances of potential concern

The focus of ECHA and Member States is on substances for which concerns have not yet been clarified. Currently, new data is being generated or assessed on 750 substances. Substances are increasingly addressed in groups based on structural similarity.

Are you interested in Union authorisation for your biocidal product?
ECHA’s website gives an overview of the application deadlines until the end of 2019. Union authorisation allows you to place a biocidal product on the market throughout the EU without the need for specific national authorisation.
Registrants: get ready to comment on the 2017 substance evaluation draft decisions

ECHA is preparing to send out the draft decisions on information requests for 16 substances to registrants for comments. Because of the REACH 2018 registration deadline, draft decisions on 15 substances will be sent later than usual. The registrants will have 30 days to submit their comments.
