Plasticisers Under REACH

Certain plasticisers- especially phthalate types- have been under increasing scrutiny and regulation over the past several years within the European Union as well as in other developed countries.   The level of study and potential for further controls on various plasticisers is continuing.

Syska Voskian have studied the broad range of phthalate and non-phthalate plasticisers that have been registered or preregistered under REACH or are otherwise mentioned under the REACH or CLP Regulation.   We recently presented a paper on the status of various phthalate and non-phthalate plasticisers under the REACH Regulation at the RAPRA ADDCom 2012 conference.

The paper includes a excerpt of a database which Syska Voskian Consulting has developed and maintains, currently covering over 60 plasticisers, with the EC and CAS identifiers, common and trade names, REACH registration, CLP and other data, including whether subject to Authorisation, Restriction, SVHC designation, evaluation (CoRAP), etc.   Full copies of the database (in Excel format) are available for purchase, by contacting us at: Plasticiser State of Play
