ECHA is taking measures to support EU action to fight the pandemic caused by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19)


  • The Agency will, together with the European Commission, support Member States and industry to get more disinfectants on the market as soon as possible especially biocidal products – in particular isopropanol, 1-propanol and ethanol, to support the critical issue in several EU Member States.
  • Deadlines for certain processes will also be handled flexibly, including the payment of invoices. For certain deadlines that fall between now and the end of May 2020, companies will receive an extension of two months.
  • An extension of 30 days will also apply for companies to comment on ECHA’s draft decisions in cases where a registration has been considered in-compliant with legal requirements
