REACH 2018

Registration support in non-EU languages

Form to help describe the manufacturing process of UVCB substances updated

Substances of unknown or variable composition, complex reaction products or biological materials (UVCB substances) are identified by, among other things, the description of the manufacturing process. The form - first published in June - to help EU importers report or request this information, has now been updated. With the update, we hope to target EU importers only and give clearer instructions on how to report the information in IUCLID.
