"Evaluation" represents an essential part of the REACH authorities’ activities. ECHA and the Member States evaluate the information submitted by companies to examine the quality of the registration dossiers (Dossier Evaluation/Compliance Checks), the testing proposals submitted by registrants (Testing Proposals Evaluation) and to clarify if a given substance constitutes a risk to human health or the environment (Substance Evaluation).
In the context of evaluation, registrants may be required to submit further information on the substance.

Clear procedures outline timing and communication modalities (see Dossier Evaluation, Substance Evaluation here below).

Further information can be found on ECHA’s website: http://echa.europa.eu/regulations/reach/evaluation


Every year ECHA publishes a report on the progress it has made over the previous year on its obligations in relation to evaluation. These reports also include a number of recommendations addressed to potential registrants to foster improvement in the quality of future registrations. The latest report can be found here: https://echa.europa.eu/documents/10162/13628/evaluation_report_2016_en.pdf/f43e244f-7c90-75bd-e1b2-3771bcb1f8e8


Highlights from this report are available under Evaluation in the members’ section.
