…ECHA clarifies same substance, same registration

A new implementing regulation adopted by the European Commission ((EU) 2016/9) reaffirms that all companies registering the same substance should be part of the same registration. As such, REACH‑IT will be adapted (with the forthcoming release of REACH-IT 3) so that it is no longer possible to submit a registration dossier individually if a registration for the same substance already exists.
