CHEMICAL EVALUATION | Achievements, challenges and recommendations after a decade of REACH
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY - [...] The results achieved by Evaluation under REACH
demonstrate the need to speed-up evaluation and
make the process more effective. Suggestions for
improvement are included in this report. Registration dossiers do not comply with the information
required by law and do not contain sufficient information to ensure a safe use for EU citizens and the
environment. This shifts back the burden of proof
to authorities and it delays the implementation of
risk management measures (restriction, authorisation and classification & labelling). The results also
demonstrate the need to improve the interface
between Evaluation and follow-up risk management. If a concern is identified, risk management
should be initiated without delay. The results obtained under Evaluation after
10 years of REACH demonstrate the need to
streamline and simplify the Evaluation process.
