Letter of Access (LoA)

Companies that are interested in ‘data ownership’ and active participation in the collection of data and development of the Registration dossiers are encouraged to join the Consortia.

An option for a Letter of Access has also been developed for companies with fewer cobalt substances in the lower tonnage bands. The Letter of Access (LoA) option may be preferred by companies as a ‘lighter’ option. The cost-sharing aspects, and also the knowledge that a group of qualified persons will take the lead in maintaining the dossier, should provide good incentive for these companies to choose the Letter of Access option.

The LoA option does not involve ownership of data or studies produced or obtained by the Consortia, and it does not allow the company to view or to use these data/studies. The LoA grants the company the right to refer to the dossier as a Co-registrant as required by REACH Article 10(a).

The costs associated with the LoA option are outlined in the Funding Structure Document.
