TEGEWA = Association of manufacturers of

Performance chemicalsand auxiliariesfor industrial downstream users- substances- polymers- mixtures- reaction masses- preparations

- surfactants - paper chemicals,- textile auxiliaries - leather and fur auxiliaries,- colourants for leather, textile, paper- complexing agents,- antimicrobial products,- polymeric flocculants,- cosmetic raw materials,- pharmaceutical excipients- and allied products

Key questions for downstream users

Key questions for Downstream users

  • Will REACH costs of the supplier be passed on along the supply chain?

  • Will substances / formulations been withdrawn from the EU markets?

  • Will suppliers of substances consider the uses within the leather manufacturing by providing appropriate Exposure scenario for the downstream communication?

  • Will leather manufacturers have to consider specific duties under REACH?

Duties of manufacturers of articles

Duties of manufacturers of articles

  • Major requests from manufacturers of articles and retailers: REACH par. 7 and 33

    - par. 7 (1): Intended release  (pre-)registration

    - par. 7 (2): SVHC substances  notification

    - par. 33: SVHC substances  consumer rights to know

COTANCE Round Table - 27 October 2008 - Bologna - Alex Föller


Reach impact on the portfolio strategies

REACH – Impact on the portfolio strategies

Withdrawal of substances due to registration …

…some conclusions (1)

  • Assumption: all existing chemical substances will bepre-registered, as companies want to support and maintain their current markets (even if some companies may abstain from pre-registration in single cases)

  • It may as well be expected that large-volume substances (≥ 1,000 t) will be registered (question: will each use be covered in the registration dossier?)

  • Thus, no severe changings in the EU substance portfolio to be expected before 2013.

COTANCE Round Table - 27 October 2008 - Bologna - Alex Föller


Reach impact on the portfolio strategies1

REACH – Impact on the portfolio strategies

Withdrawal of substances due to registration …some conclusions (2) – What will happen beyond 2013?

  • Will ECHA be able to cope with all claims and demands in time (registration dossiers and evaluation of the large volume substances, authorization)?

  • Will the Review of the regulation (2011 or 2012?) affect the conditions for the registration of the small volume substances…in a positive way?

  • Will industry as well as authorities be in a better shape (learning curve) to get along with the registration duties?

COTANCE Round Table - 27 October 2008 - Bologna - Alex Föller


Reach impact on the portfolio strategies2

REACH – Impact on the portfolio strategies

Withdrawal of substances due to registration…some conclusions (3) – What will happen beyond 2013?

  • What is the overall market situation beyond 2013?

  • Will other regions of the world copy REACH?

  • …or will they produce better regulations?

     very difficult to forecast the withdrawal of small volume substances due to REACH
