The Downstream Users of Chemicals Co-ordination Group (DUCC) is a platform of European associations which represent "downstream” industries. DUCC's main objective is to contribute, with a common voice, to the successful implementation of the requirements of the REACH and CLP Regulations.
FEICA represents the adhesives and sealant industry in DUCC, together with participants from associations covering cosmetics; fragrances; soaps and detergents; aerosols; paints and inks; imaging and printing chemicals; crop protection chemicals; construction chemicals and chemical distribution. 


While bringing technical expertise to the group, FEICA also ensures that the viewpoint of the adhesive and sealant industry is taken into account when DUCC formulates its responses and recommendations. More information can be found on the DUCC website.

FEICA contributes to DUCC publications, position papers, guidances and tools (see below).

More details about our work can be found on the REACH pages of this website.

As communicated during CARACAL 27, DUCC will continue to engage in a constructive manner with the European Commission and stakeholders. DUCC believes that the tools, developed by either DUCC or by individual DUCC members such as FEICA, are instrumental for a smoother implementation of the REACH review actions. 

The factsheet DUCC's history of supporting REACH (Nov. 2018) gives an overview of all the tools that have been developed by DUCC and its members related to the REACH Regulation.
