REACH Legislation

REACH legislation (Registration, Evaluation & Authorisation of Chemicals), is having an increasing impact on the materials used in the business. Clwyd have followed the development of this legislation closely , and are well placed to advise…

As formulators, it is our current policy, where possible, to exclude SVHC from our products and our business.

This enables customers to use our compounds with confidence, with no need to worry about this legislation, or to comply with the control and notification requirements it imposes. Where it has not been possible to avoid SVHC usage, we will provide all the necessary advice and supporting information.

Replacement of long established, but hazardous, substances with newer safer alternatives obviously requires careful testing to ensure that product performance will not be compromised. We have been working to reduce the use of hazardous chemicals in rubber compounds since the introduction of COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) legislation in 1989, and are well placed to give advice. We were members of the consortium working on the European Saferubber Project and have extensive experience and knowledge in minimising the associated risks.

However, more SVHC are being identified each year; ECHA started registration and evaluation of those substances which are produced in bulk in 2008, and since June 2018 all substances produced in quantities >1tpa are subjected to these processes. In addition, attention is now being focussed on identifying “incidental” ingredients in substances which may previously have been disregarded (e.g. remnants of pre-cursor substances used in the reaction which produces the desired substance). As a result, substances which were previously regarded as free from SVHC may be subjected to reclassification.
We are keeping the situation under constant review.
