Registrants intending to update their contact information in REACH-IT must do so now
Media enquiries: ECHA Press
ECHA is issuing practical instructions to support registrants that wish to correct their existing dossier(s) prior to publication of their contact details on the new Co-Registrants page in REACH-IT. The update should be submitted to ECHA as soon as possible.
Helsinki, 6 November 2012 - As previously announced (ECHA/NA/12/44), the next release of REACH-IT will include a new Co-Registrants page which gives registrants direct access to each other's contact details. This is a reminder that registrants are advised to review their existing dossier(s), in particular in the case that a third party representative (TPR) has been appointed by the registrant but has not been consistently reported in the relevant dossier(s).
To support these registrants ECHA has published practical instructions that outline the key points to check within their existing dossiers.
ECHA recommends registrants to review these instructions and submit any resultant update as soon as possible, taking into account the time of processing required at ECHA. Such updates can only be taken into account in the new Co-Registrants page if they have reached the positive decision stage before the launch of the updated REACH-IT scheduled for 30 November 2012. In order to achieve this any resultant updates should be submitted by 16 November 2012 at the latest. We would recommend constructing such updates so that they only include the revised ‘TPR' information; this is to avoid triggering an invoice and so facilitate prompt processing of the update prior to 30 November.
