Progress in evaluation

ECHA has to report on the progress made in dossier and substance evaluation by 28 February each year according to Article 54 of REACH.

The reporting gives the numbers for each of the outputs.

A description of their impact will be included in the report on ECHA’s integrated regulatory strategy, which is due to be published in April 2020.

Overall progress from 2009 to 2019

Since 2009 in the three evaluation processes – compliance check, testing proposal examination and substance evaluation – ECHA has issued more than 2 500 decisions covering approximately 6 600 information requests.
