Each notification should include the:
- Name and contact details of the notifier;
- Identity of the substance, including the name and other identifiers, information related to molecular and structural formula, composition, nature and amount of additives;
- Classification of the substance according to the CLP criteria;
- Reason for "no classification" if the substance is classified in some but not all hazard classes or differentiations indicating whether this is due to
- a lack of data,
- inconclusive data, or
- data which is conclusive for non-classification;
- Specific concentration limits or M-factors, where relevant, including a justification for setting them; and
- Label elements, including hazard pictograms, signal words, hazard statements and any supplemental hazard statements.
Companies may, under certain conditions, keep the IUPAC name of a substance confidential when notifying it to the C&L Inventory. The IUPAC name can be considered confidential and therefore not published in the C&L inventory for:
- non-phase-in substances;
- substances only used as one or more of the following:
- in scientific research and development; or
- in product and process-orientated research and development.
To keep the IUPAC name confidential, companies need to provide in their IUCLID dossier:
- A justification including a clear indication of whether the substance concerned is a non-phase-in substance, a substance used as a chemical intermediate, in scientific research and development or in product and process-orientated research and development.
- An alternative name for dissemination by ECHA.
Only IUCLID 5 can be used to make such confidentiality flags. How to do this is explained in Data Submission Manual Part 12.
There is no fee for the confidentiality flags in the C&L notification.
An alternative name provided in a C&L notification for dissemination cannot be used automatically for other purposes. An appropriate request is needed to use an alternative name for a substance in a mixture in a safety data sheet or on a label.
