The European Chemicals Agency (ECHAi) announced a six-month moratorium on the publication of ten guidance documents earlier this month. The moratorium is designed to give industry the opportunity to focus on preparing dossiers for registration and the CLPi notifications by the first REACHi registration deadline of 30 November 2010, rather than getting bogged down in the consultation processes. Industry has indicated to ECHA that work on guidance updates and new guidance in 2010 has taken a lot of effort and time to prepare.
The following ten guidance documents have been postponed until after the first REACH registration deadline of 30 November 2010:
Guidance on registration
Guidance on Information Requirements & Chemical Safety Assessment
Guidance on substances in articles
Guidance on Safety Data Sheets
Guidance on the CLP Regulation
