Updates and SIEF progress overview

The Nickel REACH Consortia has established a voluntary procedure to update all the REACH Registration dossiers on a regular basis. These updates are based on two levels of priorities set by the Consortia members. According to these priorities, the most urgent updates (including the incorporation of new exposure scenarios to cover new identified uses, new DNELs or PNECs) are submitted every year. Other updates, such as the inclusion of new exposure data in the existing exposure scenarios, will be updated every two years. 

In addition, a complete revision of all the exposure scenarios is currently ongoing and will be completed in 2017 for all the uses and substances covered by the Nickel REACH Consortia. The collaboration of manufacturers and downstream users is crucial to improve the exposure scenarios.
