December 1, 2008
American Elements continues to timely complete all steps, filings and registrations required by Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) to assure uninterrupted service of our products to our customers within the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA).
REACH procedures call for the registration of certain commercially produced and sold materials. To be sold within the EEA in volumes exceeding one (1) metric ton per year, all such substances must have a technical dossier in order to complete registration. If the material is presently being manufactured and sold, there are specific Phase-In Rules under REACH allowing for continued sale so long as all such products have been properly pre-registered prior to December 1, 2008.
American Elements strongly supports the policies and intent underlying REACH. American Elements has successfully completed the pre-registration of its products as of the December 1, 2008 deadline and will complete all other filing and documentation mandates, such as the preparation of technical dossiers and Chemical Safety Reports (CSR), as is necessary to achieve timely final registration of its products. American Elements provides REACH guidance to its customers. Further questions can be directed to our REACH Implementation Unit at: REACH@americanelements.com.
