Information requirements for reproductive toxicity changed
The REACH annexes VIII, IX and X have been amended with the inclusion of the extended one-generation reproductive toxicity study (EOGRTS, EU B.56, OECD TG 443). EOGRTS will now be the information requirement for reproductive toxicity in REACH instead of the two-generation reproductive toxicity study (EU B.35, OECD TG 416). The updated annexes will enter into force 13 March 2015. ECHA is updating its guidance on reproductive toxicity to reflect the regulatory changes and aims to finalise it by July 2015. A draft is already available on ECHA's website.
Give your opinion on a platform with information on substances in materials
Are you a supplier of articles? Do you have or need information on hazardous substances in articles or materials? If yes, we would like to hear your views on the idea of building a "Materials' Information Platform" (MIP) and how it could meet your needs.
As already announced in our e-News on 11 February, ECHA and Ökopol GmbH invite you to participate in this survey and give your feedback.
The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. The initial closing date has been extended until 6 March 2015.
The Stakeholders' Day offers participants the chance to hear the latest news and updates from ECHA, European industry associations and NGOs.
