ECHA: Regulation 2020/507 modifies the percentage of registration dossiers for verification of compliance

Article 41 of the REACH Regulation requires ECHA to select a percentage of registration dossiers to check whether the information submitted by registrants complies with the legal requirements.

With the publication of Regulation no. 2020/507 the dossiers to be verified will be 20% of the total dossiers submitted for each tonnage band and no longer 5%.

The new regulation will verify:

  • until 31 December 2023, a percentage of files not less than 20% of the total received by the Agency for registration in the tonnage bands equal to or greater than 100 tons per year;
  • until 31 December 2027 a percentage of not less than 20% of the total received by the Agency for registrations in the tonnage bands of less than 100 tons per year.

It is recalled that the compliance check may result in a draft decision requiring the registrant or registrants to communicate all the information necessary to bring the registration or registrations in compliance with the relevant information requirements.

The Regulation comes into force on April 28, 2020.
