SIEF / SIEF Agreements

Date: 7 January 2019


The EU Regulation on chemicals “REACH” (Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006) stipulates that Substance Information Exchange Forums (SIEFs) had to be operational until 1 June 2018, the day after the last REACH registration deadline.
Nonetheless, the registrants of a substance are still bound by the obligation to submit the information on their substance jointly and as of 1 January 2019, co-registrants have to coordinate the reply to ECHA, and speak with one voice during the entire process if they receive an ECHA decision, due to testing proposal evaluation or incompleteness of their dossiers.
