Substance Information

NB: Registration status and tonnage

  • The REACH Registered substance portal was updated on 9th November 2020; the REACH registered factsheets were further updated on 21st December 2020. Details of the improvements can be found at Dissemination Platform Updates. Reprocessing the entire dataset is ongoing since 21 December 2020. ECHA is making all possible efforts to synchronise the registration status and tonnage with the shortest delay.
  • While reprocessing is ongoing please note that substances whose registration dossiers are not yet processed can incorrectly state in the Infocard that they are not registered under REACH. In these cases if there is a link to a REACH registered substance factsheet then the substance IS registered. The correct total tonnage band can be found in the factsheet(s) for the substance.

Regulatory context

Here you can find all of the regulations and regulatory lists in which this substance appears, according to the data available to ECHA. This substance has been found in the following regulatory activities (directly, or inheriting the regulatory context of a parent substance):

REACH - Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation
  • Substances indicated, in 2009, as being intended to be registered by at least one company in the EEA.
Previous Legislations
  • Substances listed in the EINECS, ELINCS, or NLP inventories.
Food Contact Materials (FCM) Framework Regulation
  • Food Contact Materials (FCM) Framework Regulation - Annex I and Art. 5
    EU. Annex I - Material & Article Groups (Article 5), Regulation 1935/2004/EC on Food Contact Materials, amended by Regulation 2019/1381/EC, 6 September 2019

    This list contains the groups of materials and articles listed in Annex I of the Food Contact Framework Regulation 1935/2004/EC. Article 5(1) of the regulation stipulates that the EU Commission may adopt or amend specific measures for these Annex I-listed material and article groups.

Food Contact Recycled Plastic Materials and Articles Regulation
  • FCMs Recycled Plastic & Articles Regulation - Annex I - Authorised Use
    EU. Plastic Food Contact Materials (FCMs) per Regulation 10/2011/EU (Union List), Directive 282/2008/EC on Recycled Plastic FCMs, 28 March 2008, amended by Regulation 2015/1906/EU, 23 October 2015

    This list contains the Annex I Plastic Food Contact Materials (FCMs) authorised for use in the European Union under Regulation 10/2011/EU. Pursuant to Art. 4(b) of Directive 282/2008/EC on recycled plastic FCMs, plastic recycling processes can only be authorised if input originates from plastic materials and articles manufactured in accordance with EU legislation on plastic food contact materials and articles.

Food Contact Regenerated Cellulose Directive
  • Food Contact Regenerated Cellulose Directive - Authorised Substances
    EU. Substances Authorised in Manufacture of Regenerated Cellulose Film for Use as FCM (Annex II), Directive 2007/42/EC, 30 June 2007

    This list contains the substances and substance groups authorised by the EU in the manufacture of regenerated cellulose film intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. Representing Annex II of Directive 2007/42/EC, the list is divided into first and second parts, for uncoated and coated regenerated cellulose film, respectively. For some entries, the list includes functional classes, maximum and minimum limit values, and other restrictions.

Plastic Materials and Articles Regulation
  • FCM and Articles Regulation, Annex I - Authorised Substances
    EU. Union List of Authorised Substances: Annex I, Plastics Food Contact Regulation 10/2011/EU, as amended by Regulation 2020/1245/EU, 3 September 2020

    This list contains the Union list of authorised monomers, other starting substances, macromolecules obtained from microbial fermentation, additives and polymer production aids. It is taken from Annex I of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
