Joint Submission Management

Joint submission (JS) groups represent co-registrants intending to submit a joint registration for the same substance. These groups are formed to facilitate data sharing between the companies and avoid duplication of testing.

After the end of the phase-in period with the registration deadline in May 2018, co-registrants are  encouraged to use joint submission or similar informal communication platforms enabling them to meet their running registration and data sharing obligations under REACH. SCC provides complete joint submission management, covering all technical, scientific and regulatory aspects.

As lead registrant you may need to lead and run a joint submission group, but might lack the resources or experience to do so well. We are skilled in efficiently managing registration groups and consortia on behalf of our customers and have enjoyed high industry trust for many years.
