    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

    Mixture Assessment Factor explained (French, in cooperation with Detic)

    Under the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability, the European Commission plans to put a system in place that covers the combination effects of unintentional chemical mixtures. Because of the complexity linked to regulating an almost infinite number of possible combination of chemicals, the concept of a Mixture Assessment Factor (MAF) was launched, and FEICA created a leaflet detailing the MAF concept and consequences.

    In support of our National Association members, this leaflet has been made available in 8 European languages here: https://www.feica.eu/our-priorities/reach/safe-use-mixtures.
