Enregistrement

Companies are responsible for collecting information on the properties and uses of the substances they manufacture or import above one tonne a year. They also have to assess the hazards and potential risks presented by the substance.

This information is communicated to ECHA through a registration dossier containing the hazard information and, where relevant, an assessment of the risks that the use of the substance may pose and how these risks should be controlled.

Registration applies to substances on their own, substances in mixtures and certain cases of substances in articles. Chemical substances that are already regulated by other legislations such as medicines, or radioactive substances are partially or completely exempted from REACH requirements.

Registration is based on the "one substance, one registration" principle. This means that manufacturers and importers of the same substance have to submit their registration jointly. The analytical and spectral information provided should be consistent and sufficient to confirm the substance identity.

For substance registration a fee is usually charged.

 

Substances to be registered
 
Potential manufacturers and importers of substances must submit an inquiry to ECHA and register the substance before they can manufacture or import the substance.
 
All substances notified under the Dangerous Substances Directive (also called NONS) are considered to be registered under REACH and ECHA has assigned registration numbers to all the notifications. The owners of the notifications can claim the registration numbers from ECHA.
