Read-across has generated much attention, since it may be used as an alternative approach for addressing the information requirements under REACH. Experience in the application of “read-across” has undoubtedly been gained within the context of the 2010 registrations (>1000 tonnes/annum). Industry, European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and EU Member States all conceptually accept read-across approaches but difficulties still remain in applying them consistently in practice. A workshop on the ‘Use of Read-Across for Chemical Safety Assessment under REACH’, organised by ECHA with the active support of Cefic LRI was held on the 3rd October 2012 to gain insight on how ECHA evaluates read-across justifications, to share Industry experiences with read-across approaches and to discuss practical strategies to help develop scientifically valid read-across for future submissions.
