Statutory Product Registrations
Product Registration pursuant to Article 45 CLP
Article 45 of the CLP Regulation establishes a reporting obligation for hazardous mixtures, biocides and washing and cleaning agents before initial placement on the market and before each product change takes effect. In an emergency, this register provides a central location with precise information about emergency first aid care.
In Germany, it is the Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung [Federal Institute for Risk Assessment] (BfR) which fulfils this task. For our customers, we take care of the entire organizational processing of product registrations at BfR. Other EU member states have likewise entrusted appropriate authorities with this task. However, the registration procedure is regulated nationally. We know which authorities are responsible in the EU countries as well as their requirements for a national product registration. On behalf of our customers, we take care of the often time-consuming compilation of the information required nationally, all required translations and the registration process in all EU countries.
Classification and Labelling (CLP) Directory
The classification and labelling directory is a database that has been set up by the ECHA [European Chemicals Agency] and is accessible to the general public as a source of information. It gives information about the classification and labelling of chemical substances. Registration is required for hazardous substances in the area of application of EU Regulation 2006/1272 [CLP Regulation] and for substances that must be registered in accordance with REACH.
On behalf of our customers, we take care of the registration, including the entire organizational processing, in the Classification and Labelling directory on the basis of the data in the SDS.
Everyone in Germany who initially places batteries on the market is subject to the Battery Act (BattG as transposition of EU Directive 06/66/EC) and must ensure that these batteries are disposed of properly when used up. In this connection, it makes no difference whether the batteries have been built into or are attached to a product, whether they are batteries, accumulators or battery-driven products. The size of the batteries, whether they are button cells or industrial batteries is likewise irrelevant. All companies which market batteries in Germany for the first time must fulfil an extensive catalogue of statutory requirements.discharges
Centres comparable to the GRS have also been set up in other EU member states for disposing of used batteries. Our customers have been entrusting us for many years with the regular registrations in Germany as well as in other European countries. But we can be helpful only with classifying the batteries and reviewing the notification and labelling obligations.
