Comment to the Presentation
The presentation is built on previous REACH
knowledge and only a very concise summary
and key terms will be repeated
What is REACH?
 REACH is the new chemical legislation in EU
affecting the sale and manufacture of all
chemicals unless specifically exempted
 REACH is in Force NOW!
 No (pre)-registration – no Market
What to register?
 All substances – on their own, in preparations or
articles (if intended to be released)
 manufactured or imported in quantities of 1 tonne
or more per year
 unless they are explicitly exempted from the
scope of registration, notably Annex IV, V.
How to Register?
1. Independent, professional Only Representative
2. Own legal entity (subsidiary in the EU) as
registrant
3. (Importer in the EU as OR/registrant)
4. (Test laboratories)
5. (Multinational companies)
6. (Non-EU Government affiliates)
When to Register?

Terminology
 SIEF = Substance Information Exchange Forum
 All pre-registered substances are automatically
part of the (pre)SIEF.
 After sameness of the substances is agreed the
SIEF officially starts
 Purpose of SIEF: agree on CLP and data sharing
 Consortia
 “Voluntary”
 Formalized co-operation between companies

Starting point
If substance is not hazardous, only data for physicochemical properties required (Annex III)

When there is an information gap which cannot be filled by any non-testing method,
registrant has to take action
- Annexes VII or VIII : generate new information
- Annexes IX or X : prepare a testing proposal
Tests needed (1/4)
Tests Needed (2/4)
Tests Needed (3/4)
Tests Needed (4/4)
Conclusions on technical requirements
 There is an incredible workload coming towards
substance with the 2010 deadline
 Numerous tests have either to be performed
(Annex VII-VIII) or testing proposals submitted
(Annex IX-X)
 Requires completely new interactions between
competitors (NOTE: Competition LAW!)
How is the industry coping with this?
European Chemical Industry Council
(CEFIC) Alert 4.3.2009
 A key warning to companies is that in practice, they should aim
to submit lead registration dossiers by June 2010 - six months
before the deadline - to be on the safe side. This is so that it can
undergo a technical completeness check and secure registration after the registration fee has been paid - in time so that all other
members of the substance information exchange forum (SIEF) that
are sharing data in that dossier can refer to it.
 The timeline also indicates that already: SIEF formation facilitators
should have been identified; codes reflecting the role companies will
play within SIEFs should have been communicated; and agreement
on the sameness of a substance represented by the SIEF should
have been achieved. For many SIEFs this will not have happened--it
is understood that only 10% of pre-SIEFs had a potential
formation facilitator lined up via the pre-registration process.

Deadline is within 2 weeks after the sending of the letter but no later than 1st of
March 2009 if the earliest registration deadline in the SIEF is 30 November 2010.
Assignment of SIEF codes is not static and may change over time
No assignment of code will mean default code 4 (please note that these codes can
be changed at any time by contacting the SFF).

Position
My position
(please indicate the

This is a substance of high strategic
importance for my company and I
have available resource to (co) lead
and drive registration to completion
My company is registering and may
be actively involved. My company
will receive a SIEF progress report,
an invoice* and an invitation to
comment
My company has the intention to
register this substance. My company
will receive a SIEF progress report
and an invoice*
My company has no intention to
register nor to spend money. My
company
will
receive
no
communications and no invoice
(besides mandatory data sharing).
* Invoice will include the data needed for the corresponding registration and any additional
management compensation according to cost sharing system agreed in the entire SIEF.

Why so slow progress – major reason ?



Big ones not taking the lead, especially non-EU manufacturers
Pre-registration, basic challenges
 Major tasks
 Substance identification (chemistry)
 Knowledge about & interpretation of REACH regulation (legal)
 Volume calculation
 REACH-IT
Registration, completely new challenges
 Pre-SIEF , SIEF and consortia formation: Who should take the
leading position, what it means, how to cooperate in SIEF /
Consortia, cost sharing etc (legal & business)
 Later: Evaluation of data, new research (toxicological & ecotoxicological tasks)
Current status: Pre-SIEFs have started, but…
 We (= our customers) have made pre-registrations for
around 2.000 substances
 Less than 200 Pre-SIEFs are running…
 Reason to be worried ??
SIEF and Consortia Strategy
Copyright © 2008 REACHLAW Ltd. All rights reserved.
Immediate Actions needed
 Products in over 1000 t category or CMR’s are in
very real danger of missing the 2010 deadline if
no one is taking the lead
 What is the pre(SIEF) status?
 Data availability?
 SIEF distribution?
But first, let’s understand the individual role...
Our Categorization - first understand the
status
Next Step: (pre)SIEF status
 What is the status of the pre-SIEF?
 Is it progressing
 Based on the pre-SIEF lisiting are there other
major manufacturers
 Who is the SIEF Formation Facilitator?
 ECHA will not assist in this process!
IF THE MAJOR MANUFACTURERS WILL NOT
TAKE THE LEAD, REGISTRATION DEADLINE
WILL BE MISSED

authorisation
 The criteria used are:
 Intrinsic properties (CRM, PBT, vPvB)
 Volumes applied
 Nature of Uses

2. Your individual data gap (=
your missing data)
3. The total data gap (cost for
new research)
4. Number of potential
registrants sharing the cost

Conclusions
Copyright © 2008 REACHLAW Ltd. All rights reserved.
Conclusions – short term
 All substances are covered correctly and REACH
compliance exists
 Enforcements have started and will continue to grow in
activity
 There is not any time to be lost of your deadline is in
2010 and no consortia exists
 Be careful of consultant SIEF Formation Facilitators
(wrong interest)
 Pre-consortium study
 Lead registrant
 Are intermediates relevant?
Conclusions – long term
 REACH is not a short term operational issue but a very
stratgic one. It will effect:
 Future investments at plants
 Process changes
 Supply chain changes (e.g raw material quality)
 REACH will be a tool for competition
 Non-EU suppliers will be divided into compliant vs noncompliant companies with an economic effect
 What will happen after 2010?
 Will EU buyers prefer to buy from fully REACH compliant
suppliers regardless of registration deadline?
Let us not repeat the pre-registration
problem…not possible now…
Thank you for your attention !
