The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has announced that it will publish its dossier evaluation decisions on compliance checks and examination of testing proposals; these will be available on the Agency’s website.

This is an interesting move and follows on from some Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) commenting that ECHA’s procedures were not as transparent as the should have been under EU law.

From now on,non-confidential versions of all dossier evaluation decisions originating from compliance checks and examination of testing proposals will be published on the Agency’s website. In most cases they will have a link to the related aggregated registration information as contained in ECHA’s dissemination portal. ECHA will continue publishing available decisions on a regular basis.

This will be a welcome move to many organisations and their responses and comments will prove interesting.
