CASE 1: Digital Solutions > CompliantSuppliers
Client confidential, Belgium
As a downstream user of hundreds of chemicals, the confidential company in question was concerned with the REACH and CLP compliance status of the chemicals they procure or intends to procure. The company was attempting to do a compliance check on all chemicals from the various suppliers manually by email and excel questionnaires but soon found out that the suppliers were not responding to the questionnaires.
The compliance check tool CompliantSuppliers available on-line at www.compliantsuppliers.com was utilized as an alternative using its “customer campaign” –feature. All relevant suppliers were invited to report REACH & CLP compliance information on their products supplier to the Client and the response rate was 94 % to the first contact or at the latest the second reminder. The campaign was initiated and once the recipients were identified the campaign could be launched immediately. As a result of the campaign, 30 % of the respondents had some irregularities with their products compliance status whilst another 30 % had poor or very poor and non-compliance (e)SDS for the supplier chemical products. Around 5 % of the chemicals were deemed non-compliant and the Client had to find another supplier for these chemicals. Some additional potential suppliers were also found on CompliantSuppliers
OR change service and subsequent OR representative and registration services
Non-EU manufacturer A has pre-registered a number of substances through a small EU-based consultancy as OR in 2008. As registration is due by 31st May 2018 and enforcement activities of continuous OR responsibilities increase, A wishes to change to an experienced leading REACH service provider as OR.
REACHLaw supports manufacturer A with the termination of the appointment of the previous OR and seeks its consent to the OR change. An OR agreement between REACHLaw and A is concluded. Pre-registrations are transferred to REACHLaw using the Legal Entity Change ‘handshake’ functionality in REACH-IT. EU importers are then informed about REACHLaw as the new OR.

Since the year 2008, REACHLaw has delivered several seminars, workshops and webinars, in the local language for the CIQyP member companies. We have addressed REACH, CLP, REACH Authorisation and Supply Chain management topics, to help the Argentinean chemical industry to cope with the REACH & CLP requirements.
Co-Registration planning and execution for 2018 deadline
Determining a proper Co-registration strategy for the last REACH deadline to determine the total costs, workload and analytical tests required.
Identify all potentials substances (several hundred substances) that have a “business case” post 2018 and potential new substances. Based on this “shortlist”, identify the existence of SIEF’s or PRE-SIEF’s (whether there is a Lead Registrant or not) and potential LoA / Consortium membership fees. Furthermore the analytical test requirements were mapped and gaps identified. Based on this 2018 Strategy, the Client can now budget for 2018 registration and even out the cost peaks.
