The EEB agrees with the Commission that there are still gaps in the knowledge of many substances and that a revision of the information requirements is needed. The revision of REACH should ensure that the registration dossiers include all information needed for the identification (and classification under CLP Regulation), hazard assessment and risk management of hazardous chemical substances. In addition to what is mentioned in the IIA, the revision of REACH needs to address the demands of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability (CSS), in particular information requirements for the identification of immuno- and neurotoxic chemicals, EDCs and information on carcinogenicity at all tonnage levels as well as clarification of the general rules to adaptation.
