  • The ‘Essential Use’ Concept.pdf

    For members Uploaded October 29, 2021

    The ‘Essential Use’ Concept

    The ‘Essential Use’ Concept has been developed in the context of a global effort to regulate highly persistent substances in relation to their function in society. Its introduction could affect a myriad of substances, as it would allow a substance to be used only if critical to health and safety or critical for the functioning of society. It could bear substantial adjustment costs for the adhesives and sealants industry, forcing the sector to switch to alternative chemicals not necessarily providing the same technical performance.

    This publication offers background information with regards to the concept of ‘essential use’, FEICA’s view and the next steps.

    BASA Advisory Note on UKREACH for EU suppliers into GB market

    Lorna Williams, BASA Executive Officer and General Secretary, has shared an advisory note for FEICA members on UKREACH and the implications for EU suppliers to GB customers. As with EU REACH most polymers are currently exempt from UKREACH registration obligations, but the monomers and chemical substances used to manufacture polymers are required to be registered if imported into GB above 1T per annum (the same as for EU REACH). BASA is producing templates, guides, and advice to BASA member companies, and these are available on the Members-only area of the BASA website. For more information on UKREACH or BASA membership, please visit the BASA Website
