European Commission calls for feedback on substance identity and sameness of complex substances


The 2013 REACH Review concluded that the definition of substance identity and the determination of substance sameness are some of the most challenging aspects of the REACH Regulation. In line with the review actions, the European Commission is now gathering feedback from industry on how the assessment of substance identity and substance sameness can be improved.

Helsinki, 26 March 2014 – The aim is to clarify the issues and to find solutions before the 2018 registration deadline. Share your experiences with substance identity in the registration process and reply to the questionnaire by 7 April 2014.
