i2a and REACH


REACH Regulation
(EC) No 1907/2006 has been implemented 1 June 2007 and replaced the COUNCIL REGULATION (EEC) No 793/93 (regulating the European risk assessment system) since June 2008.

The EU-REACH Regulation gives greater responsibility to industry to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on the substances.

For more information with regard to REACH see: European Commission - Environment Directorate-General - Reach

In view of REACH the Antimony Trioxide Association expanded to cover most antimony compounds. Bylaws and an internal agreement have been defined. Our experience with Antimony Trioxide (ATO) and the former vertical consortium (ATOS) meant that i2a was well positioned to set up a consortium for other antimony substances based on this successful model.

All the scientific data gathered under the EU Risk Assessment was transferred to a REACH dossier and has enabled industry partners to register ATO (and the other antimony compounds) at the appropriate time.

Producers, importers and users of antimony and/or antimony compounds that intend to register an antimony substance under REACH are encouraged to check the membership section of this website and to contact the i2a Secretariat. 
 
PRE-SIEF 

The sole purpose of the pre-SIEF was to agree substance 'sameness'.

All pre-registrants for one of the 10 antimony substances within i2a have received an e-mail with a link to participate in the 'substance sameness' discussion. (see Pre-Sief communication page)

The participation was in the form of completing and submitting a short pre-SIEF survey. As required by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), this was the obligatory first step before SIEF formation.

Recommended background reading SIEF

What is the purpose of the SIEF?

The purpose of a Substance Information Exchange Forum (SIEF) is to help registrants of the same substance to share information about the substance and to avoid duplication of testing.

How is a SIEF formed?

A SIEF is formed when companies have agreed that their substance is the same. Companies in the SIEF are free to choose how they communicate and organize themselves. Companies can opt for any of the four different categories of involvement [PDF - 140 KB] in the SIEF process.

Lead Registrant

All SIEFs must select a Lead Registrant. This is a mandatory role laid down by the REACH Regulation. The Lead Registrant is the one registrant acting with the agreement of the other assenting registrant(s) and who shall, among other tasks, submit the "joint dossier".

The members of i2a decided to maintain 10 antimony substances for REACH registration via i2a. The highest tonnage band of our members determined the registration deadline.

The appointed lead registrants are all member of i2a and were elected after giving the pre-SIEF 4 weeks to object to our choice of lead registrant. All lead registrants identified themselves to ECHA.

The International Antimony Association is acting as SIEF Facilitator, on behalf of the Lead Registrant, for each of the substances.

    The International Antimony Association (i2a) has prepared the REACH-registration dossiers for 8 antimony substances and is regularly communicating within the SIEFs in the name of our members.
However, we cannot guarantee a tailor-made REACH dossier will be ready on time for companies joining late.
The third REACH-registration deadline, for substances manufactured or imported at 1-100 tonnes per year, is 31 May 2018.
