Part 3RIP 3.4 – DATA SHARING

Alan Eastwood, Economic Advisor, CIA


Rip 3 4 scope

RIP 3.4 – SCOPE

  • Pre-registration – but not the detail of substance naming (RIP 3.10)

  • SIEF formation – at this point you do have to agree on what your substance actually is

  • SIEF operation and rules for data sharing – but not detail of what you need to assemble (RIP 3.3)

  • Cost sharing, confidentiality issues, competition regulations

  • Rules for joint submission of dossiers

  • Opt out provisions

    In short, the procedures rather than the contents


Data sharing the essentials

DATA SHARING – THE ESSENTIALS


Pre registration

PRE-REGISTRATION

  • From 1 June to 30 November 2008 (inclusive)

  • Must provide:

    • Company identification: name, address, contact

    • Substance identity (EINECS, CAS, ….)

    • Tonnage band

    • For all legal entities

  • Not obligatory to pre-register: can register direct, but only after “inquiry” at ECB; must suspend production until full dossier lodged. Same applies if pre-reg deadline missed

  • Not obligatory to register after pre-reg – but can’t evade data sharing obligations


Notification of other pre registrants publication of list of substances

NOTIFICATION OF OTHER PRE-REGISTRANTS; PUBLICATION OF LIST OF SUBSTANCES

  • Pre-registrants will be informed of each new company notifying the “same” substance (according to EINECS, CAS, etc)

  • After the end of the pre-registration period the Agency will publish, by 1 Jan 2009, a list of the substances that have been pre-registered (but not the individual manufacturers/importers involved) plus “read-across” related substances

  • Other parties can then notify the Agency of their interest in offering data – and check substances they use have indeed been pre-registered


Sief formation

SIEF FORMATION

  • Key process is establishing “sameness” of substances in context of data sharing. Membership of the same pre-registration group will not automatically lead to membership of the same SIEF. This could be a major organisational, as well as technical, challenge (hope for a good facilitator!) RIP 3.4 gives advice; important amplification of Art 29 in para 4.5

  • Other data holders can offer, but not demand, data and receive payment for it

  • The Agency will take no part in overseeing SIEF formation, nor be aware of which SIEFs exist – unless participants use REACH IT optional fields

  • Can share data on different substances (“read across”), but registrations must be separate


Operation of the sief

OPERATION OF THE SIEF

  • Objective is to avoid unnecessary duplication of testing (especially animal testing) and to agree classification and labelling for the substance

  • Neither REACH itself nor RIP 3.4 prescribes any particular operational model. RIP 3.4 describes how various “consortia” patterns could evolve

  • It is the Agency’s preferred outcome that each SIEF should lead to one joint submission (OSOR), but opt outs are possible

  • Legal agreements will be necessary – but no help from REACH itself

  • Will also need a “treasurer”


Practicalities of sief operation

PRACTICALITIES OF SIEF OPERATION

  • Obligations on requesting to share data, and on responding

  • Guidelines on cost sharing models and possible formulae in RIP 3.4; REACH text stipulates in simple terms how to resolve disagreements

  • Confidential Business Information aspects

  • Competition law – no collusion!


Registration joint submission

REGISTRATION: JOINT SUBMISSION

  • Choice of Lead Registrant (not necessarily identical to SIEF facilitator) – would expect LR to be one of largest tonnage members of SIEF

  • Specification of dossier contents (separate; joint; optional)

  • Opt outs

    • Disproportionate cost

    • Protection of confidential information to avoid “substantial commercial detriment”

    • Disagreement with LR over choice of information


Timetable status

TIMETABLE; STATUS

  • Draft RIP 3.4 to Commission early June (after 3 SEG meetings)

  • Posted on ECB web site 10 July for public consultation to 17 Aug (so just closed)

  • Competent Authorities to discuss/endorse at meeting 3-4 Sep

    RIPs provided in good faith, having been approved by Commission. Nevertheless REACH text remains the only legal basis
