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.
Substance Information Sheet (SIS)

Substance Information Sheet (SIS)

A REACH registrant is required to produce and provide a safety data sheet (SDS) if the substance put on the EU market is:

(a)    Classified as hazardous under the CLP Regulation (1272/2008/EC) or as dangerous under the Dangerous Substances Directive (67/548/EEC); or

(b)    It is persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT), or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB) as defined in Annex XIII of the REACH Regulation; or

(c)    The substance is included in the European Chemicals Agency’s (ECHA) Candidate List of substances of very high concern

You can find the candidate list on ECHA's website at the following link: http://echa.europa.eu/chem_data/authorisation_process/candidate_list_table_en.asp

If the substance does not meet any of the above criteria it is not mandatory to produce a SDS.

In such cases, and if agreed with the supply chain, a voluntary Substance Information Sheet (SIS) can be provided if absolutely necessary. This is not a mandatory requirement hence there is no prescribed format.
