Registration periods:Preregistration: June 1, 2008—December 1, 2008Substances ≥ 1000 t/a, CMR ≥ 1 t/a, R50/R53 ≥ 100 t/a through November 30, 2010Substances 100 – 1000 t/a through May 31, 2013Substances 1 – 100 t/a through May 31, 2018
2008:During the pre-registration period in 2008, Evonik successfully performed 13,600 pre-registrations for approximately 50 legal entities and close to 4,000 substances. Most pre-registrations were made for substances used in production and, in certain cases, as a necessary precaution to protect externally sourced raw materials that are critical for our operations. Only some of these substances are actually required to be registered—in three stages through 2010, 2013, and 2018, depending on the quantity.
Through the end of 2010:At the beginning of 2009, Evonik became the first company in the market to successfully register synthetic amorphous silica, in other words, precipitated silica (including ULTRASIL® and SIPERNAT®) and fumed silica (AEROSIL®). The substances were registered by order of the respective REACH consortia in the form of a joint submission. As the lead registrant, Evonik has blazed a trail for the other chemical companies organized therein to have these substances registered.
By the end of the first registration period (November 30, 2010) for large-volume chemicals (> 1,000 t/a), Evonik had successfully registered almost 170 substances with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), which translates into over 260 registration procedures when multiple registrations for additional legal units as well as existing registrations in lower tonnage bands are taken into account.
Through mid-2013:As of the end of the second registration period (May 31, 2013) for the 100-1,000 t/a band and in the period that followed, Evonik successfully submitted over 630 registration dossiers for more than 430 substances, taking the different legal entities into account. Through mid-2018:The third registration phase through May 31, 2018, is for the 1-100 t/a band. For this there are initial estimates at Evonik of which substances must be registered by then, but for understandable reasons it is not yet possible to make binding statements. For a multinational specialty chemicals company like Evonik, implementing the complex requirements of the REACH Regulation involves performing a whole range of tasks to ensure that our products are in conformity with the law. This can only be achieved with appropriately trained staff, suitable IT systems, considerable financial outlay plus active involvement in trade associations. For this reason, Evonik is a member of the corresponding working groups and bodies of the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI), the Federation of German Industry (BDI), the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) as well as other organizations such as the Technical Committee of Petroleum Additive Manufacturers in Europe (ATC) and the European Silicones Center (CES).
