ERJ staff report (PR)
European Rubber Journal is currently preparing a report on the impact of the next phase of REACH regulations on the rubber industry:
By 31 May 2018, all substances manufactured or imported into the EU at volumes of 1-100 tonnes per year will have to be registered under the EU regulation.
For our feature, so, we are asking major players in the industry for their viewpoints on this topic, which will affect many companies and compound ingredients for the first time.
To contribute to our report, please kindly let me know if you could comment on some or all of the following points by my copy deadline of 28 August:
How geared up do you think the rubber industry is to meet the next phase of the REACH requirements?
What particular issues to you expect rubber compounders and product manufacturers will face?
How will this impact on the choice/availability of rubber chemicals in the market?
Any other points?
To contribute to the feature, please contact ERJ editor.
Patrick Raleigh by email.
Your input would be most welcome.
