  • FEICA leaflet notification of polymers (Italian).pdf

    Uploaded December 23, 2021

    Defining a system for the notification of polymers (ITALIAN, in cooperation with AVISA)

    This is the Italian 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 impact assessment on the EU polymers of low concern (PLC) definition and the definition of polymeric precursors

    The fifth CARACAL Subgroup polymers meeting was held on 20 October 2021. FEICA submitted some initial comments after the CASG meeting. In this FEICA paper, we share additional figures from members on the impact of certain measures before the 6th CASG meeting.

    FEICA response after the 5th CARACAL Polymers meeting

    The European Commission is working on a proposal to extend registration requirements to polymers (currently exempted) under REACH. The FEICA polymers task force is very active on the topic, being represented in the CARACAL polymers subgroup (CASG polymers) with two seats.

    This paper includes FEICA’s comments from the 5th CASG polymers meeting which was held on 20 October 2021. It discusses the polyesters exemption, the definition of polymers of low concern, the polymeric precursors exemption, the grouping of polymers and the notification of polymers.

    Polymeric Precursors Exemption

    Within the context of the registration of polymers, a potential exemption for polymeric precursors is under consideration. The European Commission is proposing an exemption for polymeric precursors handled like intermediates under REACH. Given the importance for the adhesive and sealant industry, FEICA published a presentation explaining the difference between polymeric precursors and intermediates, and the benefits of a full exemption for polymeric precursors.

    You can view the presentation here.

  • BASA Advisory note to FEICA - UKREACH.pdf

    For members Uploaded October 19, 2021

    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

  • A safe future for polyurethane products (Version 2).pdf

    A safe future for polyurethane products (Version 2)

    On 4 August 2020, a new restriction on diisocyanates was adopted by the European authorities under REACH. It targets respiratory and dermal sensitisation potentially caused by diisocyanates. All professional and industrial users of products with a total monomeric diisocyanate concentration of > 0.1% will need to be trained and certified by 24 August 2023 in how to handle products containing diisocyanates safely. 

    The FEICA Technical Working Group PU Restriction created a leaflet (available in eight languages) explaining what the restriction means exactly, how the required training is developing and what the implementation of the timeline is exactly. 

    This leaflet has now been updated in all 8 available languages.

    FEICA comments after fourth CASG polymers meeting

    The ‘Thought Starter on substance identification and joint submission obligations of Polymers Requiring Registration’, developed by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), was discussed during the fourth CARACAL subgroup (CASG) polymers meeting on 22 June (Agenda item 4: CASG-Polymers/05/2021).

    FEICA submitted some initial comments regarding the paper in advance of the CASG meeting. These are the additional comments on the paper, in line with the discussions held during the meeting.
