 Deadlines for the Registration of Chemicals


 Set by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) determined by tonnage manufactured or imported. 

Deadline for registration

Phase-in substances


> 1000 tonnes/a

>  100 tonnes/a Chemicals dangerous for the environment, classified N (R50/53)

>     1 tonne/a CMR substances (Carcinogenic, Mutagenic or Toxic for reproduction)


> 100t/a



>    1t/a

See the ECHA REACH 2018 roadmap describing this step.


Non-phase-in substances

Substances > 1 tonne/a have to be registered before their manufacture/import into the EU



 The European Court in a decision of 10 September 2015 (case C-106/14) decided that a separate notification should be submitted to ECHA for each article that makes up a complex product, when more than 0.1% of the weight of this article was made up of a SVHC. Therefore several notifications are required for some complex products. More details are explained on the website of Construction Products Europe.

 European Chemical Agency ECHA made available presentations that address the key issues of REACH and CLP affecting downstream users.

European Chemical Agency ECHA made available a Table of restricted substances (Annex XVII of REACH), in addition to the SVHC candidate list.

Project report issued in April 2011: "Substances classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxic for reproduction (CMR) and other substances of concern in consumer products"
