About Us

REACH is the abbreviation used for the EU regulation (REACH Chemicals Directive 1907/2006) concerning the “‘Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals’. It is a massive piece of legislation that as a regulation applies automatically to all 27 EU member states as well as Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein (but not Switzerland).

ECHA speeds up approvals of biocidal actives 

As a result of the huge demand outstripping supply for ethanol and propanol based hand sanitisers due to the Covid 19 pandemic, ECHA and the Commission are working with member states and industry to co-ordinate requests for derogations and how to enact them. Both actives are effective against the Covid 19 virus,  Both n and isopropanol are approved under the EU Biocidal Products regulation (BPR) and this is therefore regulated at an EU level by ECHA.  Ethanol is not yet approved under the BPR and therefore remains regulated at a national level with each member state responsible to enact derogations to permit supply from previously non-authorised suppliers.  Those that are fast tracking new ethanol supplies will permit those that follow the frame formulations published by the World Health Organisation, which contain ethanol, hydrogen peroxide and glycerine 

Ethanol is not yet approved under the BPR and therefore remains regulated at a national level with each member state responsible to enact derogations to permit supply from previously non-authorised suppliers.  Those that are fast tracking new ethanol supplies will permit formulations that follow World Health Organisation guideline composition as follows:
  • ethanol:                    80%
  • Hydrogen peroxide:    0.125%
  • glycerine:                    1.45%
  • with the balance water

ECHA increases scope of technical completeness check

From the April 2020 update of IUCLID, ECHA will expand the scope of the technical completeness checks.  A number of the items that are currently covered by the quality completeness checks will be moved to the mandatory requirements.  

Within the IUCLID dossier, there will be further checks on the end points of biodegradation, genotoxicity and reproductive toxicity, particularly to ensure that waivers are correctly formulated and that for end points ,where mutiple studies are required, that these have been corrected provided.  These checks will cover the following points:

  • To ensure that the there are PROCS and/or PC codes plus ERC codes included in contributing scenarios
  • That the following are provided: operational conditions, risk management measures,  exposure estimates and risk characterisation ratios (RCR), (where there are DNELs/PNECs or for high hazard substances even without these, physical form of substance, concentration, frequency of use, room ventilation and any engineering or PPE) both for individual and combined routes
  • For consumers: amount used per day and dermal contac area.
  • For the environment: emission factors to water and onsite emission controls and emisisons and RCRs for all target compartments
  • There must be information on humans exposed via the environment and secondary poisoning (if logKow>3)

However, as a reflection of the pressure on industry to carry out updates to CSRs during the restrictions imposed to address the Covid 19 crisis, ECHA has postponed the introduction of these additional checks until October 2020.
