As part of the CoRAP for 2022-2024, 27 substances are listed under EU REACH

19 Apr 2022

European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has listed 27 substances for evaluation by EU Member States under Community rolling action plan (CoRAP) for 2022-2024 under EU REACH. A total of four substances will be evaluated in 2022, while 23 substances will be evaluated in 2023 and 2024.

Based on the opinions of its Member State Committee, ECHA adopted and published its CoRAP for 2022-2024 on 22 March 2022.

Registrants should update the dossiers with new relevant information, such as hazards, tonnages, use, and exposure.

The Community rolling action plan update covering the years 2022, 2023 and 2024

There are 27 substances listed in The Community rolling action plan (CoRAP) update for the years 2022-2024 that are suspected of posing a risk to human health or the environment and are being evaluated by 10 Member State competent authorities, under the substance evaluation process of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (Articles 44 to 48). There are two newly allocated substances to the plan, as well as 25 substances included in the previous CoRAP update of 2021-2023, published on 17 March 2021. There has been a postponement of the evaluation year for 20 of the 25 substances, principally to allow time for new information to be submitted.

Although it is planned to evaluate four substances in 2022, 14 substances in 2023, and nine substances in 2024, there may be changes for substances listed for years 2023 and 2024 in the next CoRAP update in 2023.

CoRAP withdrawn the remaining 25 substances of the 50 listed in the previous CoRAP update 2021-2023, since for six of them, the data is already deemed adequate to clarify the initial concerns, and for 19, the dossier evaluation processes require more information. If concerns remain after the completion of these processes beyond what can be clarified by dossier evaluation, the substances may be added to CoRAP again.

The CoRAP update was prepared in close collaboration with the Member States, considering the criteria for selecting substances. On 1 December 2021, a draft CoRAP was submitted to the Member States and to the Member State Committee (MSC) for their opinions and published on the ECHA website on 15 December 2021. Using the MSC report, which was adopted on 21 February 2022, ECHA adopted the CoRAP update. In March 2022, the update was published on the ECHA website.
