Chemours REACH General Statement
All products sold by Chemours legal entities in Europe1 to our EEA customers are compliant with REACH regulatory requirements, including pre-registration2 and registration, in line with related deadlines as specified by REACH, whatever the tonnage band.
REACH requires registration for individual substances (on their own or in preparations) greater than one metric ton per year produced or imported. Chemours successfully complied with the 2010 and 2013 registration deadlines and plans to complete the remaining registrations for our products in 2018 as set by the legislation.
Chemours supports its product portfolio in EEA under REACH, under the condition that the REACH legislation does not impose a commercial or technical burden which could impact the health of our business. Some products may no longer be available on the European market pending business decisions and/or regulations. Should our intention to register change or should there be a change in our product composition between now and 2018, we will make every effort to notify our customers in advance.
Each importer is responsible for his own compliance with REACH; Chemours products sold to customers outside of EEA may not necessarily be compliant with REACH requirements.
To fully understand the obligations that you as our customer have under REACH, we recommend that you consult the ECHA website at https://echa.europa.eu/
(1) This includes the Chemours legal entities in the EU/EEA, as well as Chemours International Operations Sàrl.
(2) Chemours, for its products and brands, has submitted pre-registration files to ECHA for the substances requiring pre-registration that are manufactured/imported by Chemours. Receipt of those files has been acknowledged by ECHA. To the best of our knowledge, the substances that Chemours purchases on the European market have been (pre-)registered by their respective manufacturers or importers.
Chemours Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) General statement
Chemours sells products into a large variety of markets and applications. The majority of the products we sell do not contain substances above the legal threshold of above or equal to 0.1 % (w/w) that are on the European Union (EU) Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern for Authorisation(1) or that have been moved to the Authorisation list(2), also known as REACH Annex XIV.
For the products that contain a SVHC, we notify our direct customers and distributors in the EEA via the Safety Data Sheet in Section 15.
