New REACH registration statistics available

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is now publishing detailed statistics on the origin and types of REACH registration dossiers and registered substances. This will improve the understanding of the registration activity by the European public. ECHA will update the statistics every month.
The new statistics on REACH registrations provide various breakdowns of the total volume of registrations received from June 2008 until 31 August 2012. The total registration volume also includes notifications of substances submitted under the previous European chemicals legislation (NONS) and which are considered to be registered under REACH.
ECHA is publishing this information to respond to enquiries received from stakeholders on the progress of the registration process. The Agency hopes that by publishing the origin and types of the registrations received it is enhancing transparency.
