From 1 January 2019, ECHA will communicate its dossier evaluation decisions to all registrants with non-compliant dossiers, in contrast to the current practice of typically only addressing the lead registrant. Similarly, decisions on testing proposals will be sent to all companies that intend to utilise the data from the proposed tests to fulfil an information requirement. In addition, ECHA intends to provide clearer and more focused information in its decisions. Registrants are encouraged to review and update their registration dossiers before 2019. Notable areas to consider are the availability of new data on the registered substance along with the justification for waiving standard information requirements and for the use of read-across.
