Arkema completes third registration phase under REACH
Specialty chemicals and advanced materials company Arkema has successfully completed the final phase in the registration process pursuant to the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation. Arkema has registered 148 substances with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for the final phase by May 31 deadline.

May 31, 2018 was the final date for registration of substances produced or imported in annual quantities of 1 to 100 metric tonnes.

With the registration of 148 more substances, the total number of substances registered by Arkema Group over the course of various REACH registration phases has now reached 425, Arkema said in a press release.

A leader in a number of key chemical sectors, Arkema has acted as “lead registrant” in some 50 dossiers.

Arkema Group, which had endorsed the objectives of REACH regulation from the outset, mobilised a team of over 30 people comprising toxicologists, ecotoxicologists, and regulatory managers within the Product Safety and Environment Division, the Business Units and the Central Divisions in order to reach the goal within the set deadline.

“As part of the REACH registration process and following this now complete registration phase, work and studies will continue on the evaluation of chemical substances with the aim of gaining further understanding of their properties and uses. This regulation represents a major source of progress in the control of risks and the protection of people and the environment. It is perfectly aligned with Arkema’s sustainable product stewardship strategy,” the release said. (RKS)
