A consortium is an association of two or more companies with the objective of participating in a common REACH registration process and pooling their data for achieving a common registration dossier. Consortia are an effective solution to fulfil your REACH registration requirements for single substances or whole categories together with a number of co-registering companies in a Substance Information Exchange Forum (SIEF). For a dynamic and effective cooperation with competing companies in a market sector it is essential to have a reliable partner for managing your consortia as an independent trustee.
An independent consortium manager assists you in the formation of the consortium, the set up of a consortium agreement, the organisation of meetings and conference calls and will help you with all communication related to the dossier preparation and the joint registration process. We also offer support for the sometimes complicated data- and cost sharing.
As a technical consultant he takes care of the best registration strategy, a thorough evaluation of existing data, the identification of data gaps and a precisely fitting proposal of testing strategies with due regard to scientific as well as economic aspects in order to close these gaps. He assists you in collecting data from downstream users, exposure calculation -if necessary- and the preparation of all necessary registration documents including literature survey, IUCLID files and the CSR. CLP notification and the preparation of extended safety data sheets (eSDS) complete the technical service.
As an independent trustee a contracted consortium management provides you the possibility to handle sensitive data confidential.
After successful registration the consortium manager will assist you with all financial aspects of a consortium like study compensation for shared data, calculation of individual shares regarding consortium running costs and calculation and preparation of ‘Letters of Access’ for co-registering SIEF members. Finally, he takes care of the cash flow on the escrow account and the refund payments of consortium members.
The specialised Consortium Management Team consists of experienced scientists in the fields of toxicology, ecotoxicology and chemistry with additional high quality management skills and provides extensive experience in managing of consortia. They are closely working together with the relevant experts of the other IC teams depending on the task(s) to be fulfilled.
