Helsinki, Finland -- ECHA is to re-issue its submissino lines, after initial studies showed that some submissins were in complete or inadequate. ECHA said that by 13 June 2008, 1427 companies had signed up to its online informatin system, REACH-IT. Between them, they had created 7360 pre-registrations. For 2 percent of these pre-registrations - about 150 cases -- substance identity information was not provided in line with ECHA guidelines.
Many of the 143 PPORD notification dossiers submitted via the temporary submission procedures could not be further processed due to inadequate or incomplete
information, said ECHA.
ECHA said, "More than 98% of the received pre-registrations rely on EINECS or CAS identifiers. For the remaining substances which were pre-registered by chemical names or other names, ECHA strongly recommends the use of internationally recognised nomenclature such as IUPAC names. In addition, the use of English names is encouraged. Consistent use of the guidance for identification and naming of substances is needed to ensure that potential registrants can be grouped in the same pre-SIEF".
