India REACH: Fifth Draft of the Chemicals Management and Safety Rules Released

All substances in quantities above 1 tonne per year are required to be notified. 750 priority substances that are listed in Schedule II need to be registered if in quantities above 1 tonne per year. India intends to make full use of the existing test data for registration and minimize the use of vertebrate testing. The qualification of an Authorized Representative (similar to an Only Representative under EU REACH) requires further clarification. Timelines for notification, annual reporting and dossier review are revised.

India released the fifth draft of the Chemicals (Management and Safety) Rules[1] (known as “India REACH”) on August 24, 2020. This fifth draft is believed to be the final draft, despite the fourth draft issued in March 2020 was claimed as the final draft (ChemLinked news[2]). As planned, it will be notified to the WTO for a 60-day consultation and come into force early next year.
