REACH Update January 2008: Pre-registration and SIEF Formation
Posted: December 31, 2007
page 2 of 3
All manufacturers, importers or "only" representatives that have submitted pre-registration information on the same substance will automatically become participants in the same substance information exchange forum (SIEF). For those EU manufacturers or importers that have appointed a third party representative, this representative will participate in the SIEFs.
REACH-IT is a project that is to deliver the IT for all SIEF procedures and for all further IT tools, which will enable all parties involved in the REACH process to collect, export, submit, receive, evaluate, further treat and view information on chemical substances under the proposed REACH legislation. IUCLID 5 is the software that will normally be used for data collection and dossier preparation.
- Pre-registration allows companies to continue manufacturing and importing their substances for several years
- Only phase-in substances can be pre-registered
- The information requested for pre-registration is limited, no agency fees apply
