Substances in Solvent

4 November 2019

The new registration requirements for substances supplied in organic solvents has been temporarily suspended.  An update will be provided on the OCNS website and suppliers will also be e-mailed confirming when the temporary suspension will be lifted.


The temporary suspension will provide industry additional time to consider method options and conduct relevant tests to meet the new requirements. Cefas will provide each supplier with a list of products/substances we believe are affected by the new requirements prior to, or when, the temporary suspension ends.


Cefas is currently developing the timetable for phasing in the new requirements and how this timetable will be implemented will be shared in due course. Once finalised the timetable will provide a supplier with a minimum of six months to meet the requirements.
