How are substances screened and shortlisted?
14 February 2017
11:00 - 13:00 EET



ECHA and Member State Competent Authorities are now in the fourth year of common screening. In late January every year, a number of substances are marked for manual screening by Member States. The selection is based on a set of algorithms to identify substances that may have hazardous properties and have the potential for exposure to humans or the environment.

This webinar explains the screening process, its timelines, and the criteria for short listing. It also explains how registrants can influence the manual screening process by updating their dossiers and how they can obtain more information on common screening.

The webinar also gives advice on how registrants should react to the informative letters sent by ECHA to all registrants of shortlisted substances.
