GB-based registrants of ethanol, fusel oil or vinasses that intend to grandfather a substance registration under UK-REACH need to submit data to HSE about the substance they intend to register.
Welcome to the website of the Ethanol REACH Association
The Ethanol REACH Association enables its Members and purchasers of a Letter of Access to jointly submit a consistent and high-quality dossier for ethanol, vinasses and/or fusel oil that meets the requirement of the REACH legislation.
The Ethanol-REACH Association prepared and submitted the EU-REACH registration for Ethanol and two associated substances (vinasses and fusel oil) for the appropriate deadlines of regulation 1907/2006, and since then manages membership of the joint registrations and the dossiers, keeping them up to date with EU-REACH developments.
On 14th August, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) updated the Classification and Labelling Registry of Intentions (RoI) with the following entry for Ethanol, submitted by Greece
As I am sure you are aware, ethanol is a key active component of hand sanitisers used throughout the health care industry. Whilst the Ethanol REACH Association represents and supports EU manufactures and importers of ethanol who need to register under REACH, such a registration does not cover supply of ethanol as an active biocide/disinfectant.
