Grouping approach

The grouping in the REVODS modified oil registration table, which is indicated above, has been determined by each REVODS member company on their own substances. It is the obligation of all potential registrants to determine the correct alkyl chain descriptor for the substances that they intend to register, and not to assume equivalence of their substances with a substance produced by another Legal Entity.

As a consequence of the adopted registration strategy, members of the REVODS consortium will not be submitting registration dossiers for the source-based modified oils and fats that are to be registered by SDA alkyl chain descriptors.

For source-based substances that REVODS companies will not be submitting specific registration dossiers for, we invite potential registrants within the pre-SIEFs to consider adopting the SDA nomenclature approach and to determine the appropriate alkyl chain descriptor for their modified oil or fat.

The REVODS Consortium proposes to regroup under this SIEF the following Substances and their related pre-SIEFs when appropriate:

Substance nameEINECSDegree of hydrogenation
Soybean oil, hydrogenated232-410-2Complete only (fully hydrogenated)
Oils, palm, hydrogenated271-056-3
Oils, palm, stearins, hydrogenated297-112-7
Oils, palm, oleins, hydrogenated297-111-1
Cottonseed oil, hydrogenated269-804-9
Sunflower oil, hydrogenated293-750-5
Rapeseed oil, hydrogenated283-532-8
Shea tree, ext., hydrogenated296-576-8
Butyrospermum parkii, ext., oleins, hydrogenated297-053-7
Linseed oil, hydrogenated293-320-7
Corn oil, hydrogenated271-200-5
Oils, vegetable, hydrogenated269-820-6
Olive oil, hydrogenatedno EC#
Lard, hydrogenated277-297-0

Reminder: this grouping is derived from the compositions of substances produced by REVODS members, other potential registrants must themselves ensure that their substances are equivalent and can be included in the same groups.

SIEF Agreement

A SIEF Agreement is available for signature between each applicant SIEF participant and the Lead Registrant. SIEF membership is confirmed as soon as the Agreement is signed by both the applicant SIEF Member and the Lead Registrant of the SIEF.

Applicants are invited to send two paper copies of the appended SIEF Agreement, filled in with the relevant details and signed by a duly authorized representative, to the Lead Registrant at the postal address mentioned in this SIEF page. The Lead Registrant will then sign these documents: one copy will be sent back to the applicant, and the other will be retained for the archives.

Letter of Access (LoA)

Access to the Joint Submission of this Substance is granted by the Lead Registrant to SIEF Members that have purchased a Letter of Access (LoA) on individual basis per legal entity. Joint Submission name and security token are provided to those companies that have:

  1. Confirmed the SIEF Membership, by sending 2 hard copies of the SIEF Agreement signed and received one of these signed by the Lead Registrant.
  2. Paid the Letter of Access fees. The actual fees will be provided together with the invoicing details on the invoice sent by the Consortium to the SIEF Member once his membership is confirmed.

By fulfilling these two conditions, the SIEF Member will be granted access to the Joint Submission of this Substance. The Member of the Joint Submission remains responsible for confirming his Joint Submission membership in REACH-IT. Member is also responsible for the preparation and the submission of part of the dossier that is not submitted jointly.

Following is an estimate of the maximum fees for a single Letter of Access to the Joint Dossier of this Substance. This estimate is based on the valuation of all costs and equities incurred for the preparation of this Dossier, which has been divided by the number of dossiers to be submitted to ECHA by confirmed SIEF members so far.

Thus, maximum costs for a Letter of Access to the Joint Registration of this Substance are:

  • Access for a full Registration Dossier (Substance): 31,000 EUR
  • Access for a reduced Registration Dossier (Isolated Intermediate): 15,500 EUR

Details on the cost breakdown are available upon request. Please note that these are estimates of the maximum costs only, actual amount of the fees for a letter of Access will be calculated and communicated on the invoice sent to the SIEF Member.

Note that Letters of Access have to be purchased individually by each Legal Entity member of the Joint Submission. If an OR or TPR represents several legal Entities, represented Legal Entities have to purchase letter of Access on individual bases.
