Progress in evaluation
Progress in evaluation
Article 54 of REACH requires ECHA to report on the progress made (over the previous year) in dossier and substance evaluation, by 28 February each year.
This reporting consists of numerical data on compliance checks, testing proposal examinations, follow-up assessments and substance evaluations carried out during the previous year.
Each year in spring, ECHA also publishes its Integrated Regulatory Strategy report which explains the impact of these outputs on chemical safety.
Overall progress from 2009 to 2020
As a result of compliance check, testing proposal examination and substance evaluation, since 2009, ECHA issued more than 2 900 decisions covering approximately 8 200 information requests on more than 2 000 substances.
