The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, has published revised guidance to help with registration of substances under the REACH Regulations.

Specifically, a new section R7.1 “Physicochemical properties” has been produced. This guidance also applies to the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) Regulation and brings the provisions of CLP and REACH together. Two specific changes which are given are:

  • a definition for water density in the chapter on relative densities; and
  • endpoint specific information in the registration dossier in the sections on stability of organic solvents and their degradation products, and viscosity

This guidance document provides details on the physicochemical tests which need to be carried out to accurately describe a substance as part of the registration process, gives detailed test methods and is a comprehensive technical guide which supports the REACH registration process.
