Information to be shared for registration
The REACH information requirements depend on the tonnage and uses of your substance. If you don't have all the data that you need, you can negotiate access to individual studies or to all data that existing registrants have already submitted.
- You only have to pay for data you actually need for your registration.
- You should critically assess the suitability and quality of the data you negotiate access to.
- You do not always need to provide a test on vertebrate animals to fulfil information requirements even though REACH specifies a test in animals. You can still use alternative methods or adapt (waive) certain information requirements if it is scientifically justified. This is even the case if a vertebrate animal test has already been generated and submitted by the existing registrants.
- The standard information requirements are those which are required as a minimum to meet the registration obligations of REACH and are listed in the table below. If your substance is an intermediate under strictly controlled conditions, you only need to provide any information available to you.
The information requirements changed before the 2018 deadline. If there is no longer a need to provide certain information, you don't need to negotiate cost sharing for this information with your co-registrants (even if the data has already been generated and submitted by the existing registrants).
