Since 16 January 2020, four new substances can be found on the REACH candidate list. These are:
- Diisohexyl phthalate (CAS No. 71850-09-4)
- 2-benzyl-2-dimethylamino-4'-morpholinobutyrophenone (CAS No. 119313-12-1)
- 2-methyl-1-(4-methylthiophenyl)-2-morpholinopropan-1-one (CAS No. 71868-10-5)
- Perfluorobutane sulfonic acid (PFBS) and its salts
The first three substances are toxic for reproduction and PFBS is suspected of having serious effects on human health and the environment.
Correct and exact material data is a prerequisite for compliance with legal regulations. But how can data regarding the substances in a product be indicated, if the necessary material information from the supply chain is not available? In cooperation with our partner, the VDE Testing and Certification Institute in Offenbach, we provide you a laboratory analysis in these cases.
In the chemical laboratory of the VDE Institute, the product in question is taken apart and scrutinised very closely
The verification of the IMDS data is a responsible task and ensures the correctness of all supplier data in the IMDS. The statutory regulations can only be properly adhered to when there is flawless data.
As a full-service provider, we offer you a comprehensive service for checking and entering your IMDS data.
The advantages for you:
- Your data will be verified by our IMDS expert team on time and according to the rules. You can be sure that your data is correct and thus save valuable time
Ralf Dües, IMDS and REACH expert, provided information at the last IMDS Users' Meeting on the SCIP database, which ECHA will activate from 2020 on the basis of the Waste Framework Directive. From 2021 onwards, all products containing SVHC that are manufactured in the EU or imported into the EU must be registered in this database. The presentation is available in PDF format in our IMDS Infoportal.
