Forty-six companies have one month to correct inconsistencies in their registration dossiers or face legal action for failing to comply with the EU REACH Regulation (1907/2007)
The European Chemicals Agency originally identified more than 2,000 dossiers that required updating and says the 46 firms that received the legally binding letters are responsible for 118 dossiers that still contain inconsistencies on intermediate chemical substances.
Under REACH, chemicals can be registered as intermediates if they are manufactured and used in strictly controlled conditions. Registering a substance as an intermediate means that companies have to supply less information on the hazards.
The agency wants to ensure that substances registered as intermediates meet the strict definition and are manufactured in accordance with the rules.
