Pre-registration of Tall Oil Products achieved at Forchem.
First step in REACH process completed
is very pleased to announce that after a significant and sustained effort it
has achieved ‘pre-registration’ status under REACH for its range of tall oil
products. This includes Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA), Distilled Tall Oil (DTO),
Tall Oil Rosin (TOR) as well as rosin soap and tall oil pitch-fuel. This will
allow us to benefit from the transition periods leading to full registration.
the first announcement of REACH Forchem has taken its obligations very
seriously and taken a positive approach in addressing the concerns of it’s
customers to ensure that all of the current product range would continue to be
available in the future. We are now starting to work on the next phase of REACH
implementation which is full registration and also looking at whether any of
our products may be exempt under the most recent regulations on REACH” says Anu
Valtonen, Head of Q&E Department at Forchem.
In line with
the CEFIC recommendation Forchem will not be issuing pre-registration numbers. The pre-registration number will not reveal the
substance identity or legal entity. The ECHA will not publish pre-registration
numbers so there is no way to check whether pre-registration by a specific
legal entity actually took place.
