For EU Customers:
As a manufacturer of chemicals within Europe, Stepan will fulfill its obligations under REACH for its EU customers. Specifically, we have pre-registered ALL of our non-exempt substances manufactured or imported in the EU (at more than 1 metric ton per year) by the December 1, 2008, deadline, and we currently intend to register our phase-in substances within the projected timetables (i.e. December 2010, June 2013 or June 2018).
Help with REACH for EU customers can be found at Stepan Europe by phone, ++33-476-505-160, or email, email@example.com
For Non-EU Customers:
General Obligation: There is a general obligation for manufacturers and importers of substances to submit a registration to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for each substance manufactured or imported in quantities of 1 metric ton or greater per year. Listing substances on the European Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances and pre-registered (between June 1, 2008, and December 1, 2008) allows companies to continue manufacturing or importing or using those substances (phase-in substances) until the deadline for registration with a minimum of information. The deadlines for registration are between November 30, 2010, and May 31, 2018, depending on the annual volume and hazard classification of the substances.
