REACH usage communication

Why are there two different approaches, one for classified substances and one for non-classified substances?

It is important to point out that the REACH requirements are higher for substances which are 'classified' as per the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.

Indeed, for non-CLP-classified substances, the uses are simply stated in the registration dossier via the use descriptor system.

For CLP-classified substances, we must collect further information about the conditions of uses and Risk Management Measures and develop exposure scenarios for inclusion in the registration dossier. The aim is to confirm that the substance can be used safely.
