2019 GA meeting May 8 in Madrid

2019 GA MEETING

The 2019 GA meeting which took place on Wednesday 8 May 2019 in Madrid, Spain was a resounding success. Hosted by FerroGlobe, the meeting which lasted 4 hours saw several deliberations related to the consortium governace, dossier updates and classification and labelling. Some key decisions taken by way of vote are as follows:

Some highlights:

  • Executive Committee: A new Chairmanand  a new 2nd Vice Chairman were appointed, meanwhile the 1st Vice Chiarman was maintained to enure continuity 
  • Dossier updates: Reveal changes in classification and labelling if compared to the 2010 submitted dossiers
  • Approval of the 2018 workplan and budget
  • Brexit and data: Mara will continue to support REACH regisrtation inside and outside the EU (UK REACH inclusive) but a charge yet to be determined 

Registration/Evaluation updates

After each registration phase (2010; 2013; 2018) dossiers are selected randomly for evaluation. ECHA and the Member States evaluate the information submitted by companies to examine the quality of the registration dossiers and the testing proposals, and also to clarify if a given substance constitutes a risk to human health or the environment.

Evaluation under REACH focuses on three different areas:

(1) Examination of testing proposals submitted by registrants
(2) Compliance check of the dossiers submitted by registrants
(3) Substance evaluation

Once the evaluation is complete, registrants may be required to submit further information on the substance.

Substance evaluation is the most complex, time consuming, and expensive type of evaluation, with the potential to lead to Authorisation. Below is the registration status for all substances registered by the consortium.
