    FEICA Position Paper on the Registration of Polymers – the Exemption of Polyesters

    FEICA published a paper supporting the polyesters exemption in the context of the registration of polymers. When defining polymers subject to registration, polymers without relevant toxicological or ecotoxicological properties will be considered as polymers of low concern (PLC) and exempt from registration obligations. The PLC concept would in principle apply to polyester polymers manufactured from predefined monomers under the so-called ’Polyester Exemption‘. The Polyester Exemption already exists in other jurisdictions such as the United States, Canada and Australia.

    Defining a system for the notification of polymers (DUTCH, in cooperation with VLK and DETIC)

    This is the Dutch translation of the original English leaflet which can be consulted here.

    The European Commission is working to extend registration requirements for polymers, currently exempted from registration under EU REACH. The Commission is considering requesting industry to notify of certain polymers’ information.

    This FEICA leaflet explains why the notification of polymers should be limited to a concise dataset and analytical or test data should not be required at the notification stage.

    FEICA co-signs ASMoR position paper on regulatory efficiency 

    The Alliance for Sustainable Management of Chemical Risk (‘ASMoR’) is an alliance of more than 30 members that share a common position on the Essential Use Concept (‘EUC’) in EU chemicals policy. FEICA is a member of this alliance.

    ASMoR believes that applying the EUC in a sweeping fashion to all substances with a certain hazard classification would risk slowing down regulatory risk management rather than speeding it up.

    FEICA comments on the degradation of polyesters

    Polymers of relevant toxicological or ecotoxicological properties will be subject to registration as foreseen under a new REACH amendment. Polymers without such hazards will be exempt from registration obligation (Polymers of Low Concern [PLC] concept). One such exemption is the so-called ’Polyester Exemption‘, under which certain polyesters manufactured from predefined monomers will not require registration. This FEICA paper intends to address the Polyester Exemption and will also provide some background on the degradation of polyesters.
