Several new features and improvements are now publicly
available in our chemicals database. These include new information in
substance Infocards, quick links to deeper datasets for each substance
and more visibility on nanomaterials.
The properties of concern section in the Infocards has been extended
and the search possibilities for substances based on these properties
has been likewise extended.
The current regulations and
regulatory activities section has been restructured and the different
regulatory lists are now laid out by legislation in expandable blocks,
with explanations why the substances are on key lists.
identifiers section has also been improved and restructured to include
all public identifiers, including translated names and where available
allowing to search them in different EU languages.
For all of
these improvements and new features, the Infocard integrated help system
has been updated with extensive explanations and links to more
There are also new quick links to key datasets for
each substance, giving users a faster way to browse through more
data-rich datasets, such as the Brief Profiles, REACH registered
substance factsheets, the Classification and Labelling (C&L)
Inventory, biocides data and the public activities coordination tool
The advanced search has also been extended and
restructured, allowing new search possibilities. For instance, the
advanced classification and labelling search now also covers Seveso
The Infocards now have a new nanomaterial form
section, which shows whether the substance is placed on the EEA market
in nanoform and provides links to the EU Observatory for Nanomaterials
(EUON). Through the EUON’s search for nanomaterials, information on over
300 nanomaterials on the EU market can be found and linked to hazard
data. The search uses data from REACH registrations, the cosmetic
ingredients notification portal as well as the French and Belgian
Finally, disseminated REACH registration data will now start to be automatically linked to the OECD’s eChemPortal.
