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