As from 19 September 1981, the inventory has been replaced by the European List of Notified Chemical Substances (ELINCS). All "new" substances brought on to the European market are allocated an ELINCS number after their notification to the European Chemicals Bureau. The ELINCS number is also obligatory on labels and packaging.
And the No-Longer Polymers (NLP): Substances to be included in this list have been on the EU market between September 18, 1981, and October 31, 1993 and satisfy the requirement that they were considered to be polymers under the reporting rules for EINECS but are no longer considered to be polymers under the 7th amendment. Therefore to create the no-longer polymer list industry was asked to submit their candidates. The attached list is based on these submissions.
There are 100,204 different substances in the EINECS, 4,381 in ELINCS (2006 Publication) and 703 in NLP.
An ELINCS number is a seven-digit system number of the form 4XX-XXX-X, starting at 400-010-9.
A NLP number is a seven-digit system number of the form 5XX-XXX-X, starting at 500-001-0.
The EINECS/ELINCS/EC Number may be written in a general form as:
123-456-0In which R represents the check digit and N represents a fundamental sequential number. The check digit is derived from the following formula:
1N + 2N + 3N + 4N + 5N + 6N R
--------------------------- = Q + --
11 11In which Q represents an integer which is discarded.
