2021 GA Meeting May 12th, 14:00-15:30

2020 GA MEETING

 

The 2020 GA meeting which normally takes place in May was postponed to November 4th due to the global pandemic. The November 4th meeting which was virtual saw 20 attendees and lasted an hour as most of the GA mandated task/decisions were addressed by way of votes prior to the meeting. Chaired by Interim Chairman Dr Bernd Friede, the meeting though brief was effective with some key decisions taken as follows:

Some highlights:

  • Executive Committee: A new Executive team was endorsed with the 2nd Vice-Chairman becoming the Chairman and Secretary General maintained to ensure continuity
  • Non-EU letter of Access Fees: Letter of Access fees and administration fees for non-EU REACH-Like regulations per substance, per legal entity for non-MARA members was established
  • Members involvement in Non-EU regulations: MARA members wishing to register substances in non-EU REACH-like regulations will only pay administration fees as they own the data generated by MARA
  • Technical update: Three dossiers updated this year lead to a new classification for manganese based UVCB’s
  • 2020 Workplan and budget were ratified in Q1, 2020 via round robin votes.

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.
