Regulatory Affairs

REACh- European Union

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals and is European Legislation No. 1907 / 2006, which was officially entered into force in June 2007 , replacing several associated European Directives and Regulations
The REACh regulation requires substances manufactured or imported into the European Union, including substances in preparation in quantities over one metric ton per year, to be registered unless exempted. The main aims of REACh are to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals. REACh makes industry responsible for assessing and managing the risks posed by chemicals and providing appropriate safety information to their users.

The REACh process had started with the pre-registration of substances having dead line December 1, 2008. There is transitional period to complete the registration process for existing substances with phased-in deadlines of 2010, 2013 and 2018 depending on the annual quantities imported in the Europe and the hazard of the substance. As a responsible manufacturer of specialty chemicals, HPLA has always been attentive to the way chemical substances are used and continuously develop policies that aim to improve the safety and health of people as well as the environment. This is why HPLA supports the principle of a more effective chemicals regulatory system in order to deliver sustainable health and environmental safety benefits. In order to ensure that HPLA is well prepared for REACh, a special cell is formed to ensure compliance with and implementation of the regulation. HPLA has pre-registered all of the eligible substances that it exports to EU and registered the substances due for the registration.

Substances registered are:
  • KINOX® -10
  • KINOX® -76
  • KINOX® -68
  • KINOX® -30
  • MICROFINE® - ADC
  • MICROFINE® - OBSH

Other Regulations(REACh- Turkey, China and South Korea)

  • Kinox-10
  • Kinox-68
  • Kinox-76
  • Kinox-30
JAPAN/ CHINA/ KOREA

For our range of substances (which are in existing substances), registration is not required. The only requirement is to have the SDS & Label (in the local language) to be put on the packaging.

INDIA

India has started preparing REACh like regulations. At present, lists of the existing chemicals are being generated.

MSDS and packaging for all products being exported to Europe are REACh and CLP compliant.
