  • Polymeric chemicals (their constituents), imported in the EU, at/or above 1 tpy*

 

*tpy : ton per year

  • Limitation of their production/importation tonnage bands

 

  • Limitation of their type of use

What are the consequences for you?

NON REGISTERED CHEMICALS WILL NO LONGER BE AUTHORIZED IN THE EUROPEAN UNION BY MAY 31ST, 2018

If you are using :

  • Non polymeric monomers or
    oligomers
  • Imported polymeric monomers
    or oligomers

 

➞ You must check that your supplier has REGISTERED the chemical substance, or its constituents in the case of imported polymers

 

 

OUR COMMITMENTS/WARRANTIES:

  • Support the REGISTRATION of the market’s acrylates and methacrylates
    As major acrylate and methacrylate manufacturer, we are registering the most important number
    of chemical substances among the industry

 

  • Strive to substitute hazardous substances with better health and environment alternatives

Case of chemicals manufactured in the EU ➞ Polymers are exempted

Case 1: you are buying non polymeric monomers or oligomers manufactured in the EU,
formulated in or outside the EU, transformed into a polymer or an article in or outside the EU
→ You must ensure that the chemical’s manufacturer has registered the product


Case 2: you are buying polymeric monomers or oligomers made in the EU, formulated in or outside the EU, transformed into an article in or outside the EU
→ Nothing to be done wherever the formulation and the transformation are made

 

 

Case of chemicals manufactured outside the EU ➞ Polymers are not exempted

Case 3: you are buying non polymeric monomers or oligomers made outside the EU, formulated in or outside the EU, transformed into a polymer or an article in the EU
→ You must ensure that the chemical’s manufacturer has an OR* in the EU to register the product on his behalf

 

Case 4: you are buying polymeric monomers or oligomers made outside the EU, formulated in or outside the EU, transformed into an article in the EU
→ You must ensure that each polymer’s constituent has been registered through an OR*
