REACH-IT update scheduled for 11 July 2012

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has announced that it will upgrade REACH-IT, the user interface needed to submit chemical dossiers for the REACH registration program.  The upgrade will occur on July 11, 2012. To prepare for the changeover, REACH-IT will be inaccessible from Friday 6 July 2012 at 14.00 hrs (Eastern European Time) until 11 July 2012 at 9.00 hrs, in order for ECHA to install the new version of the software and to migrate the data from the present to the new version of REACH-IT.

In addition to REACH-IT, ECHA has also recently released an updated IUCLID, now version 5.4.  IUCLID 5.4 must be used for all dossiers submitted beginning July 11th.  And not to be left out, ECHA has also released a new version of Chesar, the exposure and risk assessment tool needed to complete the analysis of risk. Various plug-ins to the IUCLID software, e.g., Technical Completeness Check, Fee Calculation, Dissemination, and CSR, have also all been upgraded and will be available as the release of the new REACH-IT.

More information can be found on the ECHA site.
