Letter of Access

Please read this webpage fully before you proceed to the Buy LoA Portal

What is a Letter of Access (LoA)?

(An LoA is different from a Licence to Use)

A Letter of Access is a document that grants you the right to:

  • refer to the Lead Registrant (LR) REACH-registration dossier for the sole purpose of making your REACH-registration for a specific substance.
  • participate in the Joint-Submission in ECHA REACH-IT.

    Important Notes:

    LoAs are available on a per substance, per legal entity basis.

    If you are an Only Representative or a Third Party Representative, you will need to purchase a Letter of Access for each company and each substance you represent.

    If I buy an LoA, what do I get?

    • Letter of Access document signed by the International Molybdenum Association ( as Secretariat to the Molybdenum Consortium) confirming that you have the ‘right to refer’ to the Lead Registrant dossier for the sole purpose of making your REACH-registration for that substance. It will also require you to maintain confidentiality of dossier data and the 'token'.
    • The ‘Token’ and the 'Joint Submission Name' that enable you to ‘join the Joint-Submission’ in ECHA REACH-IT. This is an essential step in preparation for you to submit your dossier as a REACH-registration member of a Joint Submission.
    • Access to the Chemical Safety Report for that specific REACH MoCon substance.
    • Classification & Labelling information.
    • List of Uses.
    • i6z Template file to prepare your co-registration, and Guidance Manual.
    • Access to e-SDS/PIDS.

    How can I buy an LoA?

     Via the 'Buy LoA Portal' at the top of this page. The way it works is:

    • You input and submit your LoA order details
    • You then download the LoA, sign it and send it to MoCon
    • MoCon sends you the invoice by E-mail
    • After full payment (cleared funds in bank) has been received, MoCon will send you the counter-signed LoA by E-mail, and an original by post.
    • By email MoCon will also provide you with the ‘Token’ and 'Joint Submission Name' for you to ‘join the joint-submission’ for that substance in the ECHA REACH-IT system.
    • MoCon will provide you with access to the Chemical Safety Report, template i6z file, Guidance Manual, and e-SDS/PIDS.

    And what happens after that?

    • You join the joint submission in REACH-IT and you create your joint-submission dossier using IUCLID6 and the template i6z file.
    • You then send your IUCLID6 joint-submission dossier to ECHA via the REACH-IT system, within the registration timeframe for your tonnage band of that substance.
