ELINCS (European LIst of Notified Chemical Substances)
In accordance with Commission Decision 85/71/EEC [pursuant to Directive 92/32/EEC, the 7th amendment to Directive 67/548/EEC (hereinafter "the Directive") on the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions relating to the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous substances] the European List of Notified Chemical Substances (ELINCS) has been established with publication in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJ).
ELINCS is currently maintained in English language only, and published only as an internet document.
ELINCS supplements the European INventory of Existing Commercial Substances (EINECS), which lists reported substances on the EU market before 18 September 1981. While EINECS is a definitive inventory of substances exempt from notification, ELINCS does not create analogous exemptions. An original notification is generally designated as file leader for the substance.
Additional suppliers of notified substances to the EU market are liable to repeat notification, in accordance with the Directive. However, when a substance has already been notified, it is recommended for animal welfare, that the repeat notifier (with approval of a Competent Authority) make reference to assays reported in previous notifications, assuming written
agreement from the previous notifier.
The present version of ELINCS (November 2006) includes all substances notified until 30th June 2005. The new version contains 554 new entries in comparison to the last version (March 2005), and 4381 substances in total. It covers 97% of all substances registered in the New Chemicals Database up to November 2006 (4518 substances).
