If you do not register your substances, then the data on them will not be available and as a result, you will no longer be able to manufacture or supply them legally.
Short; no data, no market!
REACH & CLP
REACH is a new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The new law entered into force on 1 June 2007.
CLP or CLP Regulation is the new European Regulation on Classification, Labelling and Packaging of chemical substances and mixtures. The legislation introduces throughout the EU a new system for classifying and labelling chemicals, based on the United Nations' Globally Harmonised System (UN GHS).
Bax Chemicals policy is to be fully compliant with both the REACH and the CLP regulation and to work closely with suppliers and customers.
Who is responsible for the registration in case of import?
In case of import the registration should be made by the legal entity established in the EU who is responsiblle for the import. The responsibility for import depends on many factors such as who orders, who pays, who is dealing with the customs formalities.
Only representative of “non-community manufacturer”
Registration of substances imported into the EU on their own, in preparations or in certain cases in articles, will have to be submitted by the EU importers. This implies that each individual importer needs to register the substance(s).
Natural or legal persons that manufacture substances, formulate preparations or produce articles outside the EU cannot by themselves register a substance(s).
However, although not responsible for any action under REACH, they can nominate an only representativeestablished within the EU to carry out the required registration of the substance that is imported into the EU. This will relieve the EU importers within the same supply chain from their registration obligations, as they will be regarded as downstream users of the only representative.
Must all substances be registered?
The general obligation is to register each substance manufactured or imported in quantities greater than 1 tonne per year per manufacturer/importer. Registration is required for substances on their own, in preparations or in articles, under certain conditions.
Registration requires gathering data on physicochemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties of substances as well as specifying individual identified uses and assessments of the associated risks and safety measures connected to these uses. Manufacturers and importers have to submit this information to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki.
Essential parts of the registration dossier are:
- a Technical Dossier (for substances > 1 ton/y)
- a Chemical Safety Report (for substances > 10 ton/y)
The aim of REACH?
The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, innovative capability and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry should be enhanced. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.
The REACH Regulation gives greater responsibility to industry to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on the substances. Manufacturers and importers will be required to gather information on the properties of their chemical substances, which will allow their safe handling, and to register the information in a central database run by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki. The Agency will act as the central point in the REACH system: it will manage the databases necessary to operate the system, co-ordinate the in-depth evaluation of suspicious chemicals and run a public database in which consumers and professionals can find hazard information.
