Member States plan to evaluate 31 substances in 2019

The updated Community rolling action plan (CoRAP) for substance evaluation lists 100 substances to be evaluated in 2019-2021. Registrants of the listed substances are encouraged by ECHA to keep their REACH registrations up to date and to contact the evaluating Member States.

Member States will evaluate 100 substances over the next three years. For the 31 substances specified for 2019, the designated Member States have 12 months to evaluate substances specified for 2019 starting from the date of publication (19 March 2019) of the updated CoRAP list.

The evaluation will clarify whether further information is needed to conclude if a substance poses a risk to human health or the environment. If necessary, the registrants will be asked to provide this information. The authorities will assess the suspected concern and, where relevant, initiate regulatory risk management actions.

ECHA encourages registrants of the listed substances to coordinate their actions and to contact the evaluating Member State. Registrants should also update their dossiers, especially for uses and exposures. There will be an opportunity for registrants to provide comments before any decision to request further information is taken. The other Member States will review the draft decisions prepared by the evaluating authorities and ECHA before the final decision is issued.

Substances selected for evaluation based on concerns related to their suspected serious hazard properties. The substances selected are mainly suspected sensitisers, PBT substances, CMR substances or endocrine disruptors. The selection also considers wide dispersive worker or consumer use. The evaluation may also identify other concerns related to substances.
