REACH-IT

REACH-IT is the central IT system that supports Industry, Member State competent authorities and the European Chemicals Agency to securely submit, process and manage data and dossiers. These three parties each have access to specific functions of REACH-IT which they can use to fulfil their requirements under the REACH and CLP regulations. REACH-IT also provides a secure communication channel between these three parties to help them coordinate the processing and evaluation of data and dossiers.

 

Signing up

A general overview of how you can sign up for REACH-IT and how you can create a legal entity object. (See also Industry User Manual 2: Sign up and account management).

 

Registration process

An overview of the process for registering your substance with ECHA. An outline is given of the first steps you need to take to register a substance through either an inquiry or late pre-registration. Information is also provided on the process of joint submissions when a substance is manufactured or imported by more than one company. You can also find a general outline of how to prepare your registration dossier in IUCLID and how you submit this dossier using REACH-IT. You will also find how to request a registration number for a notified substance (also called a NON) using REACH-IT. Further information relevant to the registration process is also provided.


Pre-registering your substance

Further information on late pre-registration in the context of the REACH Regulation as well as on the relevant Industry User Manuals.


Preparing and submitting an inquiry

An introduction on when you must submit an inquiry. It is outlined how you prepare an inquiry dossier using either IUCLID or REACH-IT and how you submit this dossier to ECHA via REACH-IT.  (See also Data Submission Manual 2: How to prepare and submit an inquiry dossier).


Registering your substance

A brief outline on how to prepare and submit your registration dossier to ECHA via REACH-IT. (See also Data Submission Manuals 4: How to pass business rule verification, 5: How to complete a technical dossier for registrations, and 18: How to report the substance identity in IUCLID 5 for registration, and Industry User Manual 6: Dossier submission).


Preparing and submitting a joint submission

A brief explanation of when a joint submission is required and an outline of how you submit joint submissions.


Requesting a registration number for NONS

How to request a registration number for notified substances (also called NONS) using REACH-IT and what details ECHA requests to grant you a registration number.

A brief outline of how to prepare and submit a PPORD notification to ECHA as well as how you can request a PPORD extension. (See also Data Submission Manual 1: How to prepare and submit a PPORD notification).

 

Notifying substances in articles

A brief guide on how you submit notifications to ECHA if a manufactured or imported article contains substances on the Candidate List. Instead of using REACH-IT you may notify via a webform, and a direct link is provided together with an online tutorial.  (See also Data Submission Manual 20: How to prepare and submit a substance in articles notification using IUCLID).

 

Submitting downstream user reports

A brief step-by-step guide to submitting a downstream user report using the online webform or REACH-IT. The webform is available from this web page together with an online tutorial.  (See also Data Submission Manual 22: How to prepare and submit a downstream user report using IUCLID 5).

 

Preparing and submitting a notification to the C&L Inventory

A brief step-by-step guide on how to prepare a C&L notification using one of three different tools (IUCLID, Bulk XML, REACH-IT) for which direct links are given.  (See also Data Submission Manual 12: How to prepare and submit a classification and labelling notification using IUCLID).

 

Requesting an alternative chemical name in mixtures

A brief outline of how you can prepare a request for an alternative chemical name in mixtures and what happens following your request. There is a direct link to the webform for submitting your request. (See also: Data Submission Manual 14: How to prepare and submit a request for use of an alternative chemical name for a substance in mixture using IUCLID).

The aim of the Data Submission Manuals (DSMs) is to support industry to prepare and create IUCLID dossiers and to submit notifications, inquiries, registrations, requests and claims using REACH-IT. Step-by-step instructions for completing the process of each submission are provided in the manuals alongside overviews of the processes, concepts, and legal contexts involved.

The REACH-IT Industry User Manuals (IUMs) serve as industry guides for submitting information to ECHA using REACH-IT. The IUMs also help industry users to create and manage their account and show them how to search and retrieve information from REACH-IT.
