On 1st of June 2008, the notification scheme has been revoked and replaced by the Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH, OJ L 396, 30.12.2006). REACH is managed by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki.
The REACH regulation applies to substances manufactured in, or imported into the EEA in annual quantities of 1 ton or more per importer or manufacturer. Quantities below 1 tpa are exempt from registration.
Lonza is intending to register all of the substances and their uses; the company is importing into and/or manufacturing within the EEA. Therefore, Lonza has successfully registered all of their first priority chemicals (> 1000 tpa & > 100 tpa/N-R50/53). In addition, registration of some 2013-substances was brought forward as well.
More than 100’000 existing chemicals (EINECS-listed = Phase-In substances) have been in use before REACH came into force. In order to continue production or import in future, these chemicals had to be pre-registered between 1 June and 1 December 2008. Companies that have pre-registered their substances can benefit from the staggered registration deadlines (2010, 2013 or 2018) for their substances:
30 November 2010:
31 May 2013:
31 May 2018:
New substances require immediate registration BEFORE they are produced in or imported into the EEA in amounts of more than 1 tpa.
Chemicals already notified according to the former European Chemical Legislation Directive 92/32/EEC are considered as registered under REACH. The ELINCS-number was replaced by a REACH-Registration-Number.
