According to REACH regulation, you are obliged to communicate on several issues in the supply chain and respectively in the REACH Substance Information Exchange Fora (SIEF). In SIEF communication, quite a number of information especially relating to data needs to be gathered from or fed back to co-registrants. You also need to agree on the substance Identify, the Lead registrant, on the classification and labelling, and crucial information needs to be communicated to the authorities.
ReachCentrum Communication Support helps you find out the intentions of your co-registrants, and it guarantees the best approach to contacting downstream users to gather information. It helps you store all communication and make sure information previously distributed is available, and communicate to the authorities, including ECHA and its different bodies.

Do you want to know more about the REACH priorities after the second registration deadline?

At the conference, organised by IBC Legal and Tax Conferences, high level speakers from industry and authorities will tackle several REACH topics such as REACH after the Commission review 2012,  preparation for inspections, REACH evalution, authorisation in the supply chain and much more.
ReachCentrum, with its training manager Vincenzo Girardi will address on 26 June the REACH priorities after the second registration deadline, including:

  • REACH audit - what are we doing within the company to be compliant with REACH SIEF activities?
  • Envisaging the eventual post registration activities of a SIEF - testing proposals are approved
  • Cost sharing re-evaluated eSDS - the production and distribution of extended safety data sheets adapted to the needs of customers
  • How do I achieve this dossier evaluation? Reviewing the quality of the actual dossier submitted to ECHA before ECHA uses it for substance evaluation
  • How to cope with inspections on site REACH?
  • The ‘A’ in REACH - what happens if authorisation becomes reality?
  • REACH knowledge drain - who needs to know what about REACH within the company and how to avoid losing knowledge when people leave

Further information is available at conference website


Your registration is filed and you have received your registration number - you have successfully registered. However, REACH is not over yet - your dossier may be evaluated by ECHA.

Once a dossier is submitted under the registration process, it might be subject to Evaluation under REACH.
Under dossier Evaluation, European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) will evaluate all testing proposals. Of all dossiers per tonnage band 5% will undergo a compliance check by ECHA.
For substance Evaluation the Member States check if a substance can constitute a risk to human health or to the environment.

Do you have a procedure in place for this? When do you need to inform or consult the SIEF?

There are two types of evaluation: dossier evaluation and substance evaluation.

Dossier evaluation
The joint submission dossier is evaluated on its content. This can be related to the testing proposals which are all checked to ensure that tests are justified and adequate to avoid unnecessary animal testing and costs. Further to this, 5% of all dossiers in a tonnage band will undergo evaluation in form of a compliance check to ensure their compliance with registration requirements. Priority is given here to dossiers with certain characteristics, e.g. dossiers submitted separately, or using a read across approach. 

Substance evaluation
The submitted dossier is checked to ascertain whether the use of the substance constitutes a risk to human health or the environment.
