Registry of Intentions (RoI)

The Registry of Intentions (RoI) is a public registry intended to make all interested parties aware of the substances for which a CLH, SVHC or restriction dossier is intended to be submitted. It can be accessed via the following pages: 

  • ECHA, at the EU Commission’s request, or Member States may prepare dossiers for the identification of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) and dossiers proposing restrictions (Annex XV of REACH).
  • Member State Competent Authorities (MSCAs) as well as manufacturers, importers or downstream users may submit a dossier proposing harmonised classification and labelling of a substance.

It is important to regularly check the Registry of Intentions as it allows to prepare for commenting at a later stage, in the respective process. 

Once the dossiers are submitted, a process of public consultation is started, in which Industry and other interested parties may provide comments on the proposal. Based on the comments received during the public consultation, the proposals are discussed in the respective Committees:

  • Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) for CLH and restrictions,
  • Committee for Socio-Economic Analysis (SEAC) for restrictions,
  • Member State Committee for SVHCs.

One can follow the progress of a proposal through the different processes, from the notification of the intention to the finalisation of an opinion (RAC/SEAC) or decision (MSC).
