Echa Warns of Upcoming Compliance Checks for Restricted Substances



The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) recently released a list containing 29 substances considered hazardous by the organization. There are certain plans on ground that substances on the list will be targeted by the organization during the concluding months of 2017.

The ECHA has now given registrants the opportunity to evaluate and assess their appropriate registration dossiers on or before the 31st of October, 2017. Registrants will also be required to send forward their update about any new or relevant information even if it is a change to the tonnage band.

Companies have been asked to review the list recently released by the ECHA. They are to check or monitor how much they use any of these flagged substances. These companies should also focus more on ensuring that they update their registration dossiers prior to the October deadline.

This inspection emphasizes why companies need to maintain the latest information as regards these substances in their chain of supply at every point in time. This is a very important step in the bid to stay compliant with complex chemical regulations such as the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulations.

Substances Potentially Subject To Compliance Checks

As a way of ensuring that substances are utilized safely, and in compliant with the associated registration dossier as stipulated by the REACH Regulation a list of substances were released. This will ensure that ECHA carries out a compliance check on the latest information contained in the registration dossier.

ECHA has ordered registrants to review their related registration dossiers on or before 31 October 2017. The registrants have also been asked to update the ECHA with any new development and/or relevant information. This may include an update of the CSR as well as a change of the tonnage band, where applicable. Below is a list of these substances
