2018 GA meeting: May 3rd in Belgium

2017 GA MEETING

The 2017 GA meeting took place on Thursday 4 May 2017 in Karlsruhe, Germany and was a resounding success with attendance reaching 60%, the highest since 2010. Hosted by Cronimet Holding GmbH, the meeting lasted 5 hours and saw several key decisions taken by way of vote.

Some highlights:

  • Change of Governance: Election of Tim Hird (Prince-Erachem) as Chairman; Dr Bernd Friede (Elkem) as First Vice Chair; Arnaud Vigier (Eramet) as Second Vice Chair; and Dr Doreen McGough (MARA) as Secretary General
  • Approval of an established SIEF data-sharing model in accordance with regulation 2016/9
  • Approval of the 2017 workplan and budget
  • Approval of plan to share consortium-owned OECD/GLP studies for K-REACH registration purposes

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.
