Evaluation is undertaken by ECHA to evaluate testing proposals made by industry or to check compliance with the registration requirements. There are two types of evaluation both substance and dossier evaluation. The substance evaluation process is triggered as a result of risk-based concerns.

Current activity

No Lead REACH Consortium substances are currently affected by Evaluation.

Under dossier evaluation all testing proposals must be examined, whereas for compliance checks any registration dossier can be selected. Substance evaluation is carried out by the Member States, while ECHA evaluates dossiers under dossier evaluation. A substance evaluation assessment may be used later to prepare proposals for restrictions or authorisations.
