UK REACH Agency statement on the use of independent scientific knowledge and advice (ISA) and transparency in carrying out functions survey

Following the UK’s exit from the European Union, the EU Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) has been lifted and shifted into UK law as 'UK REACH'.


Article 77 in the UK REACH Regulation makes provisions for the Agency to obtain and use independent scientific knowledge and advice (ISA) to inform relevant Agency opinions.


The Agency’s approach to gathering and using such advice will be published in a ISA statement, a draft of which can be downloaded here.


The aim of this statement is to communicate to stakeholders and the general public how ISA will be embedded within the UK REACH system and how the Agency will be transparent when carrying out UK REACH functions.


We want to hear what YOU think of the ISA statement.


To take part in a short survey about the ISA statement please visit this link.


(The survey will close on Wednesday 10 March 2021)
