Different deadlines have been set for phase-in substances and non-phase-in substances under REACH. It announced the mandatory registration of NMs manufactured or imported after 1 Jan 2020. In the submission of registration data through IUCLID, it is necessary to input whether or not the nanomaterials are regulated, The system is being built to input.
The EU REACH requires the submission of test data by tonnage for a total of 63 test items, including physicochemical properties of 17 items, human health hazard of 21 items, and environmental hazards and behavior tests of 25 items. The K-REACH also requires the submission of test data by tonnage for a total of 47 test items, including physicochemical properties of 13 items, human health hazard of 15 items, and environmental hazards and behavior tests of 19 items.
Based on these test items, a risk assessment of the substance is carried out and, if safety is secured, the substance registration is approved. For non-safety-guaranteed substances, countermeasures to reduce the risk should be prepared and presented in the process of manufacturing or using the substance.
In this consultation, the industry provides Safe-by-Design service that can confirm the safety at the R & D stage of the product or material before performing the risk assessment as post-measure. In addition, this data warehouse provides contents “Safety screening” that predicts safety at the R&D stage of product and material development.
