Nov. 22 EU: Updated Guidance on information requirements for physicochemical properties

Posted Date: 
Thursday, November 22, 2012

This news alert is brought to you by the ECHA.

Updating sub-chapter R.7.1. Physicochemical properties within Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance was necessary due to the adoption of the CLP Regulation. As a result, Article 14 of the REACH Regulation determining whether a chemical safety assessment needs to be carried out, was amended to refer to the CLP Regulation rather than the Dangerous Substances Directive. The structure of sub-chapter R.7.1 has been altered and Chapter R.9: Physicochemical hazards has been made obsolete.

Sub-chapter R.7.1 of the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment underwent the normal consultation process resulting in a consensus amongst a dedicated Partner Expert Group, ECHA's Risk Assessment Committee and the Competent Authorities for REACH and CLP (CARACAL). The final version 2.0 reflects the implementation of the feedback received.
