REACH 2013- the next stage!

Thursday, 16 June 2011 | Posted by: Sonja Schulte, European Coatings Journal

Two weeks ago Peter Rieck was asking here if the coatings industry is seeing a battle between REACH and Carbon Footbrin to dominate technology. REACH 2010 just ended in November 2010. Now the second stage of REACH is already visible on the horizon. The next REACH registration deadline is May 2013 - only two years away.This will apply to substances produced or imported into the EU at ≥100 tonnes per year per manufacturer or importer. These registrations will bring a new set of challenges. How will this second stage of REACH influence the European Coatings Industry?

Till March 2011 about 26.000 registration dossiers have been submitted to ECHA for about 4700 diffrent substances. An even greater number of substances are expected to be registered in 2013 than in 2010. The total data requirements for ≥100 tonne substances are less than for the ≥1000 tonne substances. However, as this registration deadline covers less widely used substances it is likely that fewer data will be available to fulfil the REACH endpoints. This times especially SMEs will be challenged by REACH 2013. How are these companies able to face this challenge? It will be a hard time again, I guess!
