290 of these may be candidates for further regulatory risk management at EU level if their hazards are confirmed.

Is your company size declared correctly?
If you are a micro, small or medium-sized company, you should check that the company size you claimed when registering your substances is correct. You should also ensure that you have uploaded the required supporting documents in REACH-IT.
Companies must review registrations transferred from the UK

All transfers of registrations following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU have now been completed. More than 8 000 UK-based registrations have been successfully transferred to companies in the EU, EEA or Northern Ireland. These companies must review and, if needed, update the information in these registrations.

ECHA proposes seven substances for authorisation to protect people and the environment
ECHA recommends for the European Commission to add seven substances, including the cyclosiloxanes D4, D5 and D6, to the Authorisation List. Once on the list, companies will need to apply for authorisation to continue using them.
