Dissemination and Confidentiality under the REACH Regulation

In accordance with Articles 119(1) and (2) of the REACH Regulation, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is required to publish information it holds on registered substances (whether on their own, in mixtures or in articles) free of charge on the internet. The information is published on the ECHA website, in the section "Information on Chemicals", under the title "Registered Substances".

However, in certain cases information can be withheld, if the registrant submitting the information also indicates they wish to keep the information confidential, and submits a justification as to why publishing the information would be potentially harmful to the commercial interests of the registrant or any other party concerned. Such justifications will be assessed by ECHA in accordance with Article 119(2), and where the justification is accepted as valid by ECHA, the information concerned will not be published. Claiming information confidential may be subject to a fee.
