Key Functionality Changes to ECHA’s REACH-IT system

ECHA is changing the functionality and updating the capability of REACH-IT from April 2022. The following is a summary of some of the key changes and additions to REACH-IT.

Joint Submission (JS) improvements

Important event dates shown in JS member section will include:

  • Reference number status validity

  • Change of data requirements

The lead registrant can now lower the Joint Submission tonnage band and remove jointly submitted documents (e.g. Chemical Safety Report & Guidance on Safe Use).

Downloadable list of registrations

All registrations of the Legal Entities will be listed in a CSV file which can be downloaded with information on the registration context such as:

Substance ID, registration status, role in the supply chain, role in the joint submission, tonnage band, etc.

Asset annulment warning

Asset annulment warnings will be flagged for registrations and Classification and Labelling (C&L) notifications in the following situations:

  • Registration, acquired through submission or Legal Entity Change, causes annulation of   existing C&L notification for the same substance.

  • C&L notification acquired through Legal Entity Change causes annulation of the said C&L, if successor has a registration for the same substance.

Bulk C&L notifications

C&L notifications submitted in bulk between 2010 and 2016 recorded limited administrative information and data was not submitted in IUCLID format.

From June 2022:

  • IUCLID dossiers will be available for each C&L notification submitted previously in bulk before 2016

  • Administrative information (e.g., in the submission report) will be completed

Only representatives

Only Representatives (OR) will have an obligation to identify the non-EU manufacturer and whether the company is acting as an OR by 14 October 2022.

If acting as an OR, then the following Information on the non-EU manufacturer needs to be entered into REACH-IT:

  • Company Name

  • Company Address

  • Contact person and contact details of the non-EU manufacturer (e-mail, telephone number, etc.)

  • Location of the production or formulation sites

  • OR Letter of appointment

One non-EU manufacturer per REACH-IT account

REACH-IT accounts will need to be reviewed by 14 October 2022 if you:

  • Represent more than one non-EU manufacturer from one REACH-IT account

  • Represent the same non-EU manufacturer from several REACH-IT accounts

  • Have registrations as an only representative and as a manufacturer/importer in one REACH-IT account

To make the changes, use the legal entity change functionality in REACH-IT and the fee will be waived if the change is requested before 14 October 2022.

Detailed information on how to do this can be obtained from the ECHA OR guidance document.
