Make efficient use of the resources in a SIEF and serve multiple interests
The European Chemicals Agency, ECHA, establishes a Substance Information Exchange Forum (SIEF) for every substance that requires pre-registration under REACH. All companies that have pre-registered the same substance automatically become members in the same SIEF.
Participation in a SIEF gives rise to economic, business, technical and legal questions. To make matters even more complex, there is no prescribed form of communication in a SIEF. The REACH regulation allows the free play of market forces to decide the form of organisation and communication in a SIEF. This may involve difficulties; for example, the lead registrant and the co-registrants in a SIEF may pursue different goals.
TÜV SÜD is aware of the interests of all stakeholders and offers in-depth familiarity with the issue of SIEF.
