REACH Dossier Update Obligations

REACH Dossier Update Obligations Paper

Manage complexities of REACH

Exponent assists companies looking to improve the quality of REACH registrations or to help mitigate the risk of European Chemical Agency (ECHA) requests for additional test data.

How does Exponent provide extensive, experienced REACH registration and dossier support?

The EU REACH Regulation requires registrants to update their REACH registrations "without undue delay" when information on their substance, the supply level of the substance, or company information changes. Implementing Regulation (EU) 2020/1435 sets out the timelines by which all registrants are obligated to update their registration dossiers.

Action plan for review and improvement of registration dossiers

Cefic, a major EU chemical industry association, has devised a "REACH Dossier Improvement Action Plan," which provides a voluntary framework for registrants to evaluate information that has been submitted as part of a registration, in a stepwise manner. The Action Plan outlines the timeline, roles and responsibilities, substance prioritization criteria, and critical issues to achieve a better alignment between submitted data and ECHA's current expectations on the content of dossiers.
