A new guidance document on REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals), published by FEFCO aims to provide workable guidelines for companies in the corrugated board sector.
As downstream users, board manufacturers are in the middle of the supply chain, typically purchasing raw materials from substance manufacturers and manufacturers of articles up in the supply chain, in order to produce packaging for customers at the end of the supply chain. Recovered paper is exempted from registration, but most other inputs are affected in one way or another.
In order to comply with REACH, the information about use should be reflected in the paper work submitted as part of a substance registration. FEFCO’s REACH guidance covers rules and obligations of plants and gives pragmatic information in the form of checklists and standard letters to suppliers.
