UNIPHOS and REACH
In order to comply with the Regulation EC No. 1907/2006 - REACH, it is necessary for UNIPHOS as an European based company to register all substances accordingly to the requirements of REACH.
Due to the complexity and the skills required to conduct a successful registration towards the European Chemical Agency, UNIPHOS has asked likedeelers for the assistance by their Fit4REACH Experts for the registration, so an efficient and REACH compliant registration for the substances can be guaranteed.
UNIPHOS GmbH has pre-registered all chemical substances in focus of REACH and has already successfully registered ATMP, HEDP and PBTC for a tonnage band of more than 1,000 tonnes per year in 2010. Other substances will follow 2013 and 2018.
