We have published 10 questions and answers on the substance identity profile (SIP). The SIP specifies the boundaries of the substance, which the registrants agree to cover with the data they submit jointly.
An update of ECHA's Chemical Safety Assessment and Reporting tool, Chesar, has been published. Chesar 3.3 provides, for example, improved support for sectors developing use maps and for those using them.
Committees’ opinions on one application for authorisation available
The consolidated opinions of the Committees for Risk Assessment and Socio-economic Analysis for two uses of 1,2-dichloroethane (EDC) (EC 203-458-1; CAS 107-06-2) by OLON Spa are available on our website.
A new version of the biocides submission tool, R4BP 3, is available with improvements in the user interface and the search and communication functionalities. The SPC Editor for creating summaries of products' characteristics has also been updated.
We have published an update to the Guidance on the BPR: Volume III Human health, Assessment and Evaluation (Parts B+C) to add a new section (Section 5) concerning Estimating Dietary Risk from Transfer of Biocidal Active Substances into Foods for Non-professional Uses.
New version of the ESCom standard phrase catalogue published
The European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) has updated its catalogue of standard phrases for exposure scenarios. Currently, the ESCom standard phrase catalogue contains 2 503 phrases. These phrases can be downloaded as a Chesar import file and used directly for preparing the exposure scenarios for communication with Chesar (v3.2 and v3.3).

It has no existing harmonised classification and labelling in Annex VI of the CLP. Comments are invited on all physical, human health and environment hazard classes with the exception of aspiration hazard and hazardous to the ozone layer.
bis(N-hydroxy-N-nitrosocyclohexylaminato-O,O')copper; bis(N-cyclohexyl-diazenium-dioxy)-copper; [Cu-HDO] (EC 239-703-4; CAS 15627-09-5 and 312600-89-8), an active substance used in biocidal products as a preservative of various materials. It has no existing harmonised classification and labelling in Annex VI of the CLP. Comments are invited on all physical, human health and environment hazard classes with the exception of aspiration hazard and hazardous to the ozone layer.
hexyl 2-(1-(diethylaminohydroxyphenyl)methanoyl)benzoate; hexyl 2-[4-(diethylamino)-2-hydroxybenzoyl]benzoate (EC 443-860-6; CAS 302776-68-7), an industrial chemical mainly used in cosmetics and personal care products.

Public consultation on the first review reports of REACH authorisation
ECHA has launched a public consultation on the first two review reports received in the REACH authorisation process. The review period for two uses of DEHP (EC 204-211-0) contained in recycled soft PVC expires on 21 February 2019. Two out of three authorisation holders, both waste recycling companies, submitted review reports with the aim to allow continued use of DEHP contained in recycled soft PVC.
Additionally a public consultation has started also on the two uses of pentazinc chromate octahydroxide (EC 256-418-0).
See our website for more information about the use applied for, including the description of the function of the substance, exposure scenarios, possible alternatives identified by the applicants, together with socio-economic information.
Comments can be submitted using a form on ECHA's website until 10 January 2018 (23:59 Helsinki time).
