REACH 1300 X 400

REACH

Enviresearch has many years of experience in regulatory compliance. We work with a wide range of chemical manufacturers and suppliers, from small to medium enterprises through to large-scale industrial manufacturers, to ensure their compliance with all REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006) regulatory requirements.

A REACH registration package needs to be supported by a standard set of data on that substance. Enviresearch can assist in finding solutions for any data deficiencies, offer strategic advice on compliance for your substance or product portfolio and are able to provide representation in your SIEF (Substance Information Exchange Forum) or consortium.

Our services include:
  • Preparation of technical dossiers using IUCLID software
  • Environmental exposure assessments
  • Ecotoxicology and human health assessments
  • Representation in SIEF/consortia
  • Only Representative in continental Europe
  • Registration, authorisation and notification services
  • Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) compliance services
  • Preparation of Chemical Safety Reports (CSR)
  • Data gap analysis and data quality checks
  • Preparation of Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and labelling according to GHS/CLP

Nanomaterials – Know Your Registration Responsibilities

Get ready for new REACH requirements for nanomaterials.

Nanomaterials are chemical substances with a particle size between 1 and 100 nanometres for 50% or more of the present particles in at least one dimension. As of 1 January 2020, explicit legal requirements under REACH apply for companies that manufacture or import nanomaterials within the EU.These new reporting obligations differ from conventional materials, addressing specific information requirements, namely:

  • Characterisation of nanoforms or sets of nanoforms covered by the registration – substances may comprise different nanoforms due to variation in the physiochemical properties (size, shape, surface treatment), each of which needs to be addressed specifically within the registration dossier.
  • Chemical safety assessment – nanoforms can be grouped based on physiochemical properties and reactive properties wherein a safety assessment will be required for each group.
  • Registration information requirements – Registration requirements such as tonnage triggers still apply to nanoforms.
  • Downstream user obligations – Downstream users are required to assess and document any risks arising from substances they use. The assessment shall cover the life-cycle of the substance, from its receipt by the downstream user and for identified uses further down the supply chain.

These new requirements apply to all new and existing registrations covering nanomaterials and are outlined in the corresponding revised annexes to the REACH regulation.

Enviresearch has many years of experience in regulatory compliance and is able to provide assistance in the registration of nanomaterials. A REACH registration package needs to be supported by a standard set of data on the substance, for which Enviresearch can assist for finding solutions for any data deficiency’s, offer strategic advice on compliance, and aid in technical dossier writing.
