Statement of Compliance with REACH Regulation
Statement of Compliance with REACH
The European Union (EU) REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) requires all chemicals imported into or manufactured in the EU to be registered.
Classification of Ion Exchange Resins and Synthetic Adsorbents
Under REACH, ion exchange resins and polymeric adsorbents are considered “polymers” (ref. Title I, Article 3.5) and “polymers” are exempt from Title II - Registration and Title VI - Evaluation (ref. Title I, Article 2.9). However, monomers and reactants used in their manufacture are subject to registration.
Registration of Monomers and Reactants for Purolite Ion Exchange Resins Manufactured in Europe
All monomers and reactants used in the manufacture of Purolite ion exchange resins and adsorbents are purchased only from REACH compliant suppliers. This means that all monomers and reactants are REACH registered.
Registration of Monomers and Reactants for Purolite Ion Exchange Resins Imported into Europe
Purolite S.R.L (Romania) is appointed as the “Only Representative” regarding the application and the implementation of REACH for all Purolite products imported into the EU. In doing so, Purolite S.R.L, undertakes the legal responsibility to ensure that all the REACH obligations for these imported products are fulfilled on behalf of all Purolite European operations.
Following the departure of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU) all EU REACH registrations were “Grandfathered” across to UK REACH. For Purolite ion exchange resins manufactured in the EU and imported into the UK, we will ensure our supplier has registered with UK REACH and/or we will register all the necessary substances before the relevant tonnage deadline dates.
Substances of Very High Concern
Purolite ion exchange resins and synthetic adsorbents have SVHC’s concentration limits below the legal limits for substances of Very High Concern and are compliant with the Candidate List of the Substances of Very High Concern. The candidate list can be found at http://echa.europa.eu/candidate-list-table.
Safety Data Sheets
Format Changes according to Annex II of REACH.
