ERJ staff report (DS)
Helsinki -- EChA, the European Chemicals Agency charged with implementing REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals) legislation, has introduced a new online tool which allows manufacturers of articles to notify EChA about the use of high concern.
EChA said, " The new notification tool is easy and intuitive to use. To complete the web form, notifiers need to provide a REACH-IT account number, which can be obtained by signing up with REACH-IT."
Under certain conditions, importers and producers of articles have to submit notifications of substances in articles to ECHA six months after the inclusion of the substance on the Candidate List. The 13 substances that were added to the Candidate List on 18 June 2012 thus have to be notified to ECHA by 18 December 2012.
