CoRAP: Community Rolling Action Plan

reach-corap-2018-2020.jpgOn October 24th 2017 ECHA published a new draft proposal of the CoRAP 2018-2020, taking into consideration 107 substances for evaluation by member states.

The CoRAP list contains 16 newly introduced substances, and all substances will be evaluated according to the following schedule:

  • 2018: 26 substances
  • 2019: 37 substances
  • 2020: 44 substances

The ECHA member states committee will prepare an opinion based on this draft proposal by February 2018. The final plan will be adopted in March 2018.

The evaluation process, as explained in the REACH regulation, has the objective of making substance-associated risks clearer and, in case the evaluation shows the need of obtaining more information, asking registrants and users of such substances for more information.

The 2018-2020 update has been prepared in close collaboration with the Member States, taking into account the agreed risk-based criteria for the selection of substances. The REACH regulation requires that ECHA submits a yearly update of substances subject to evaluation from Member States (CoRAP).

CoRAP: information for registrants

The CoRAP process does not include a public consultation. However, by publishing the substances’ list ECHA informs interested parties about progress in the process, encouraging the registrants of such substances to coordinate their actions and to interact with the evaluating member states.

Registrants of substances listed in the final CoRAP plan will have a chance to submit comments before a final decision regarding the requirement of extra information is taken.
