2019 GA meeting May 8 in Madrid

2018 GA MEETING

The 2018 GA meeting which took place on Thursday 3 May 2018 in Brugge, Belgium saw an increase in attendance from 2017. Hosted by Prince-Erachem, the meeting which lasted 5 hours saw several deliberations related to the last REACH deadline and its consequences thereafter including the possible re-structuring of the consortium.  Some key decisions taken by way of vote are as follows:

Some highlights:

  • Future structure of Mara: A more streamline structure to be established if the organisation is to continue functioning infinitely or in the event of a complete closure its mandate and members to be incorporated within the Mn trade association –The IMnI. Discussions are still on-going  
  • Collaboration: A clearly defined pathway for collaboration between Mara and the IMnI was established
  • Data-sharing Regulation: Approval of the reimbursement structure (to be executed in phases) in accordance with regulation 2016/9
  • Approval of the 2018 workplan and budget

Registration/Evaluation updates

After each registration phase (2010; 2013; 2018) dossiers are selected randomly for evaluation. ECHA and the Member States evaluate the information submitted by companies to examine the quality of the registration dossiers and the testing proposals, and also to clarify if a given substance constitutes a risk to human health or the environment.

Evaluation under REACH focuses on three different areas:

(1) Examination of testing proposals submitted by registrants
(2) Compliance check of the dossiers submitted by registrants
(3) Substance evaluation

Once the evaluation is complete, registrants may be required to submit further information on the substance.

Substance evaluation is the most complex, time consuming, and expensive type of evaluation, with the potential to lead to Authorisation. Below is the registration status for all substances registered by the consortium.
