Public Activities Coordination Tool (PACT)

The public activities coordination tool (PACT) provides an overview on the activities planned, ongoing or completed by ECHA and/or MSCAs for a given substance in the following areas:

·         Data generation and assessment – dossier evaluation, substance evaluation, informal hazard assessment (PBT/vPvB/ED).

·         Regulatory management option analysis (RMOA).

·         Regulatory risk management – harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) , SVHC identification, restriction.

These activities are being carried out in line with ECHA’s Integrated Regulatory Strategy.

The information in the tool is updated every 48 hours.

ECHA notes that inclusion in the PACT means that a Member State or ECHA is examining the substance. It does not mean that the substance has the suspected properties or that further regulatory risk management actions will be imposed before the relevant regulatory list – such as the Candidate List, the restricted substances list, or Annex VI to CLP – is updated.

PACT is expected to increase the transparency and predictability of authorities’ work leading up to the more formal REACH and CLP processes.
