CONCAWE Review • Spring 2011

23 Apr 2011

In 2010, CONCAWE and its Member Companies successfully completed the first phase of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals). CONCAWE was responsible for the common parts of the REACH dossiers for petroleum substances and sulphur, which were then used by our 41 member companies and more than 500 non-member licensees to complete almost 5000 registrations. These registrations represented about 18% of all REACH registrations received by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) before the 1 December 2010 deadline.
