Helsinki, Finland -- EChA, the European Chemicals Agency charged with implementing REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals) legislation, says most dossiers of substances registered as intermediates do not meet the conditions imposed by REACH that would justify benefiting from reduced information requirements. ECHA encourages registrants of intermediates to proactively reassess and, where necessary, update their registration dossiers.
ECHA's screening of over 400 registration dossiers for intermediates has indicated that 86 percent of them seem not to contain sufficient information to demonstrate that these conditions are fulfilled.
In order to demonstrate that a substance's use fulfils the criteria of an isolated intermediate, a registrant should provide information on the identity of the transformation products resulting from the use of the substance and/or information on the manufacturing processes related to the registered substances
