ECHA | 6.5 % of inspected substances miss the required registration

Your substances


ECHA Forum’s seventh REACH enforcement project checked how well companies comply with registration obligations after the last registration deadline of 31 May 2018. In addition, enforcement authorities from 28 EEA countries checked if substances registered as intermediates met the definition and if they were used under strictly controlled conditions.

A valid registration was completely missing for 77 out of 1 193 (6.5 %) inspected substances needing a registration. 180 (15 %) of the substances were non-compliant with at least one of the registration-related obligations checked in the scope of the project. This includes the duty to register but also, for example, the duty to update the dossier, use intermediates under strictly controlled conditions, submit correct tonnage information or comply with requirements for only representatives.
