The Company is fully engaged in the new European REACH programme and met the 2008 requirements. We pre-registered more than 700 substances in order to cover products manufactured in Europe, imported products, and required global raw materials. To support our global customers and markets, we created several “Only Representatives” covering the imports into Europe, and we have created the framework to cover “re-imports” of key clients. The Product Stewardship team is involved in many consortia coordinating the REACH registration of our most important product categories. We will actively supported consortia and SIEF’s in the future. In addition to complying with the REACH regulatory requirements, Elementis plans to strategically maintain an efficient supply chain and protect our critical global businesses and customers.
