(Registration Evaluation Authorisation of Chemicals)
Dear OCP partner,
You have probably heard and read about the new EU REACH chemicals regulation.
As a valued OCP partner we are happy to inform you that OCP will now also take on the responsibility of informing you regarding the appropriate procedures and associated deadlines of the REACH directive.
The REACH directive states that chemicals are only permitted to be put into circulation when there is sufficient material data IE chemical, physical properties (toxicity, behaviour in the environment, etc.)
This means that the manufacturer or importer is responsible for the safe handling of the chemical contents in their products.
You can be assured that OCP is compliant with all directives of this new EU regulation for chemical substances.
For you as a customer and partner of OCP, we can guarantee that all materials used will be pre- registered or are partially registered by our suppliers or by us as an importer.
For your convenience by 01.12.2008 all OCP material safety data sheets will also incorporate the necessary REACH regulations, and these updated OCP MSDS documents will be available at your request.
The time schedule for the REACH implementation is as follows:
01. June 2007 Inception of REACH (Foundation of the new chemicals agency in Helsinki)
01. June 2008 Beginning of the pre- registration for substances of more than 1 ton / year
01. June 2018 Registration deadline for substances of more than 1 ton / year
If you have any questions about REACH and the corresponding deadlines, please write to the following e-mail address:
We will answer your questions individually and give you advice and support.
Your OCP Team, always a step ahead!
