SABIC achieves pre-registration under REACH regulations

Jun '08
SABIC Europe has achieved the pre-registration of an initial number of substances of the total number of substances that SABIC Europe will pre-register, in order to comply with REACH.

While the pre-registration phase has just begun, SABIC Europe has already started to pre-register substances within the framework of REACH. The current pre-registration REACH phase started on 1st June and will run until 1st December 2008.

On account of this pre-registration, SABIC Europe:
- has the opportunity to herewith test the ICT systems the EC authorities have developed for REACH;
- can begin to communicate with ECHA (European Chemicals Agency);
- is able to test the communication in the pre-SIEF (Substances Information Exchange Forum);
- can share its experiences with the members of existing consortia.

The petrochemical products which SABIC produces on its sites in Europe as well as its imports from Saudi Arabia, are mainly 'high volume chemicals' which need to be addressed in the first stage of REACH.

SABIC will have until 2010 to complete the huge task of preparing product dossiers for all its substances. A dedicated SABIC REACH Program Team has been formed to cover the majority of the competences that the regulation will require.

SABIC is in the process of complying with REACH; it has all the processes in place to provide ECHA with high quality dossiers for all substances in the company portfolio, within the granted timeline.
