You have probably heard of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of CHemical substances) which entered into force within the European Union in June 2007. Under this new regulation, every chemical product will need a registration to allow production, import or sales. Every stake holder can participate to the corresponding SIEF (Substance Information Exchange Forum).
As a major player in Sulfo products, Axcentive is actively involved in this process and will register its whole product range. Recently, we have even been elected Lead Registrant for 4 substances:
- OPTSA (Ketjenflex® 9S)
- PTSA (Ketjenflex® 6)
- OTSA (Ketjenflex® 2)
This is a great acknowledgement of the Axcentive skills, but also a high responsibility because we will prepare and submit the whole dossier to ECHA (European CHemical Agency) on behalf of numerous SIEF members, with whom we will cooperate. This dossier includes topics like substance characterization, toxicology and safe use, to name a few.
