Comments

ECHA accepts no responsibility or liability with regard to the information (including attachments) submitted through the webform.
Instructions:
  1. Comments submitted through this webform should be non-confidential and will be published on ECHA’s website. Non-confidential attachments are also published on ECHA’s website.
  2. Do not submit attachments without highlighting the relevance of the attached document in the commenting box. Attachments sent without an accompanying comment may not be possible to take into account.
  3. If you submit a confidential attachment, please also provide a version with confidential parts removed/blanked out, which will be published on ECHA’s website.
  4. Umbrella organisations are recommended to submit one set of comments/attachments during the consultation phase on behalf of the member companies/organisations, rather than individual companies/organisations submitting the same comments separately.
  5. Please submit comments/information on the hazard classes open for public consultation as indicated on ECHA’s website, and in the commenting fields below. In developing its opinion, RAC may consider another category more appropriate for the classification of the substance after examining the available information in the CLH report, its annexes and information received during the public consultation. You are therefore encouraged to also give support for a proposal you agree to. Arguments on why a higher or lower classification is or is not appropriate are appreciated.
  6. Results of toxicological and ecotoxicological studies, and other information listed in Article 119 of the REACH Regulation, as read together with Article 38(2) of the CLP Regulation, cannot be claimed confidential. Information claimed confidential not in line with these provisions may not be taken into account if the confidentially claim prevents the publication of the justification of the opinion.
  7. The CLH report will not be updated following the public consultation. Therefore, comments related to language, typographical errors or editorial changes to the text of the report may not be relevant.

Information on the CLH process

The comments received will be compiled in a response to comments document (RCOM), and provided to the dossier submitter and the Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) along with the attachments submitted during the commenting phase.

If the dossier submitter is a manufacturer, importer or downstream user, confidential attachments will not be provided to them. The dossier submitter and RAC will be providing their response to the comments in the RCOM document.

Please be aware that submitting any information/comments after the public consultation is not possible. Any relevant on-going studies should be mentioned during the public consultation. However, please note that the CLH processes cannot be put on hold until the finalisation of these studies.

If the substance is an active ingredient in a plant protection product (PPP) or biocidal product (BP), comments submitted in this public consultation may be used in the PPP/BP processes, and, comments received for the PPP/BP processes may be used in the CLH process.

By submitting any information and documents through the webform, you guarantee that you hold all necessary rights with regard to the information provided, including but not limited to copyright where applicable, and therefore that you are entitled to submit this information for the purposes listed herein and for its use by ECHA, including its committees.

Therefore, you are invited to indicate below any reason for which disclosure of this information should be denied. Please note that ECHA can only examine reasons appearing in Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to documents as valid.

Under Article 4(1) and (2) of the Access to Documents Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001), several reasons are outlined as to why information submitted as confidential cannot be disclosed to persons requesting access to documents.
