REACH: Substances Registered
In association with the European Chemicals Directive REACH, K+S had registered 16 substances liable for registration with an annual production volume of more than 1,000 tonnes with the European Agency for Chemical Substances (EChA) in Helsinki.
However, after the sale of COMPO, only five of these substances are relevant for us. Two more substances with an annual production volume of 100 to 1,000 tonnes will be registered by June 2013.
We have also adapted the safety data sheets of the products to the revised Annex II of the REACH Directive, which contains requirements going beyond those required by law thus far. This has been done even though there is no obligation to create safety data sheets for the majority of these products since they are not defined as hazardous under the law on chemicals.
