AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals has registered all substances in its products under REACH in 2010 before the registration deadline of November 30, 2010. These registrations include all known major applications of our products.
AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals started working on meeting its obligations under REACH in 2006. The first milestone was reached in 2008 by submitting pre-registrations to the European CHemicals Agency (ECHA). At the same time, the REACH dossiers were initiated. The registrations have been finalized with the submission of all dossiers to ECHA before the deadline and the assignment by ECHA of the official registration numbers.
The completion of the registrations is the impressive result of a joint effort of AkzoNobel Industrial Chemicals and the REACH consortia in which it participates. Customers will be kept informed on the up-to-date information of Industrial Chemicals’ products via extended Safety Data Sheets (e-SDS).

AkzoNobel Industrial Chemical's Supply of Safety Data Sheets in accordance with REACH
We have developed and distributed extended Safety Data Sheets (e-SDS) for our products and as soon as e-SDS of our products are updated we will actively inform our customers. We would like to stress that it is your responsibility as downstream user to comply with REACH as described in article 37(4) of REACH. Therefore we urge you to verify that your use is covered by our e-SDS. We support all known major applications, but we will not be liable if we do not register all your uses unless explicitly confirmed by us in writing.

REACH - One single system
It is the biggest regulatory framework ever for the chemical industry and its downstream users in Europe: the new REACH legislation has entered into force on June 1st, 2007. REACH is an integrated system for the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of all Chemicals manufactured, imported and used in the European Union. The aim is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through better and earlier identification of the properties of chemical substances. This regulation replaces 40 existing legal acts and creates one single system for all existing and future chemicals substances, which must be registered with a new European Chemicals Agency.

Improved Product Stewardship
In the past it has not always been possible to obtain information on how chemicals are used downstream. The REACH regulation means there is a strong incentive for information to be made available – which in turn allows AkzoNobel to improve its product stewardship.
