The REACH annexes regarding skin and eye irritation and acute dermal toxicity have been amended and published in the Official Journal of the European Union. They became effective on June 20, 2016, with amendments for skin sensitization slated for late 2016. The changes to Annexes VII and VIII of REACH, known as Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/863, mean that information required for the classification or risk assessment of a substance will now be via non-animal testing. Registrants who have already submitted studies in accordance with previous legislation are not required to modify their dossiers immediately, but updates must comply with the new requirements.
