An annoucement from the EU:
A new version of the EC inventory (version 1.1) is now available for downloading at the IUCLID website.
This version of the EC inventory contains the whole of the European INventory of Existing commercial Chemical Substances (EINECS) and the No-Longer Polymer (NLP) inventories as published on ESIS. In addition it contains the European LIst of Notified Chemical Substances (ELINCS) inventory numbers that were allocated up until January 2009. Additional information such as the chemical name is only present if published in the 6th publication of ELINCS.
This updated version of the EC inventory contains 106,208 entries.
In addition, the ‘list numbers’ assigned to pre-registered substances without a current EC number have been gathered in two ‘list numbers’ IUCLID files. A first file contains 17,087 substances that have been pre-registered with a CAS number (series 600 of the ‘list numbers’) while the second file contains 22,015 substances pre-registered as multi-constituent substances or with only a chemical name as identifier (series 900 of the ‘list numbers’). The ‘list numbers’ should be used to make the registration of these substances easier. For more information, please refer to ECHA press release of 27th March 2009 (ECHA/PR/09/03).
