Following on from the first REACHi registration deadline of 30 November 2010, feedback on the testing plans entered with the registration dossiers is expected from ECHAi by December 2012 at the latest. Flue dust from the production cement clinker, calcium sulfate, blast furnace slag, fly ash and burnt shale were successfully registered by the deadline (see November 2011 Eurobrief).
ECHA aims to conduct 600 dossier evaluations per year. In addition, 350 compliance checks will be concluded in 2011 and 2012, and 570 testing proposals will have to be examined by December 2012. Under the Testing Proposal Examination (TPE) ECHA will identify whether the proposed test is adequate and justified and whether unnecessary animal testing has been avoided. Under the Compliance Check (CCH), it will look at whether the information requirements have been adequately fulfilled and if the adaptations are adequately justified.
