Lead REACH registrant Clariant is now focusing on Phase Two of REACH legislation following its successful completion of the registration of 152 substances required under Phase One by the December 1, 2010 deadline. Phase Two, which concerns more than 200 chemicals, should be completed by June 1, 2013.

For Phase One, the company held a unique position in leading 81 out of 152 (> 50%) consortia and Substance Information Exchange Forums (SIEFs). The Phase One substances covered finished products, intermediates and raw materials of 8 business units.

Due to the extensive knowledge and expertise of the toxicological, ecotoxicological and physical chemical properties of our substances Clariant took over the lead function for the majority of the respective consortia. Its commitment to Product Stewardship is highly appreciated within the industry, with its REACH registration teams comprising of Product Stewardship specialists, toxicologists, ecotoxicologists, lawyers and IT specialists.

“We are delighted to have completed the task assigned to us,“ comments Hariolf Kottmann, CEO Clariant. “Our achievement in completing Phase One registration inside the deadline required a lot of long, hard work, and an intensive use of resources. Customers have expressed their appreciation for our dedication in supporting their efforts to be REACH compliant when using our materials in their products and formulations.”

Complying with REACH is a prerequisite for a company's ability to operate in Europe. Any substances not registered by the deadlines set for each Phase will not be allowed to be produced, imported or sold, as clearly stated in Article 5 of the REACH Regulation.

Phase Two is concerned with the registration of substances supplied at = 100 t/a by June 1, 2013. Clariant has another several hundreds chemicals that fall under this category.

“We gained considerable experience during Phase One of REACH,” comments Ulrich Kussmaul, Head of Product Stewardship. “However, Clariant will have to meet the challenge to get a higher amount of substances registered in Phase Two. Our Product Stewardship organization teams are ready to go ahead and to meet this challenge both as lead registrant as well as a reliable partner within consortia to complete the task in hand within the deadline.”

Clariant is a global leader in the field of specialty chemicals. Strong business relationships, commitment to outstanding service and wide-ranging application know-how make Clariant a preferred partner for its customers.
