From 14 April 2020, ECHA starts applying a new policy regarding dossier updates during substance evaluation. The Agency and evaluating Member States will not take dossier update into account after registrants have received a draft decision for commenting.
If registrants have new relevant information on their substance after receiving a draft decision, they will need to submit it through their comments to the draft decision. Authorities will consider the comments and amend the draft decision, if needed.
The same approach already applies to dossier evaluation.
This information was published on the ECHA website (ECHA/NR/20/12), the 31st March 2020.
