The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has agreed the first steps of a new approach to improve the completeness check of incoming REACH registrations. It aims to reinforce the automatic completeness check rules on substance identity (SID) information, and will request the identification of the scope of joint registrations with regard to SID information.
This recognises the importance of accurate substance identity data, and the correct and consistent naming of chemical compounds registered under REACH. ECHA wants to work in tandem with the REACH SIDC project, which covers the analysis of substance identity and substance sameness of complex substances in REACH. It is organising a workshop to be held in Brussels on 27-28 April 2015, to which any organisation with an interest in this should attend.
It is very important for companies registering substances under REACH to be able to carry out, or draw on, validated analytical techniques to properly identify a substance, or determine the composition of mixtures and complex substances.
