ECHA has adopted the updated Community rolling action plan (CoRAP) for 2016-2018 with 138 substances to be evaluated. Registrants of these substances are encouraged to coordinate their actions and to interact early with the evaluating Member States. The Member States, the European Commission and ECHA have agreed on the recommendations on best practice for interaction between registrants and the evaluating Member States during substance evaluation. These are available on ECHA’s website. The registrants of substances listed on the CoRAP will in any case have an opportunity to comment before any decision to request further information is taken.
CoRAP specifies the substances that are to be evaluated over a period of three years. The plan is annually updated to include substances for the additional year as well as any revision to the substances that were included in the second and third year of the previous plan.
