ECHA Publishes Annex III Inventory

The inventory helps REACH registrants that manufacture or import between 1 to 10 tonnes per year in deciding whether they may be able to register their substance with limited information. The database contains 64,899 unique substances/entries.

ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, has published an Annex III inventory of substances that are likely to meet the Annex III criteria and fulfill the criteria to be hazardous. The inventory helps REACH registrants that manufacture or import between 1 to 10 tonnes per year in deciding whether they may be able to register their substance with limited information. The database contains 64,899 unique substances/entries.

Companies that qualify are able to register a substance with a reduced set of information covering only its physicochemical properties -- but only if the Annex III criteria do not apply, meaning that:

  • there is no indication a substance is likely to have carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic to reproduction (CMR, category 1A or 1B); persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT); or very persistent and very bioaccumulative (vPvB) properties, or
  • there is no indication a substance with dispersive or diffuse uses would be classified as hazardous for human health and/or as an environmental hazard under the CLP Regulation

A substance that fulfills one of the Annex III criteria needs the full set of information, including physicochemical, toxicological, and ecotoxicological information, according to ECHA.

The agency says the inventory helps companies to decide which set of information is necessary for their registration. ECHA also published a checklist to help companies determine whether they can benefit from the limited information requirements.
