Drafting a decision

ECHA or eMSCA prepare a draft decision requesting further information from the registrants.

The draft decision is sent to the registrants. Registrants have 30 days to provide comments.

If registrants comment the draft decision, ECHA or the eMSCA consider these comments and may amend the draft decision.

Please read practical guides on How to act in dossier evaluation and How to act in substance evaluation.
