Dow and Reach

REACH requires companies to identify, collect, evaluate, document and submit data to EU authorities on intrinsic properties and uses of the chemical substances they manufacture or import. Dow completed all relevant registrations as required by REACH depending on the relevant volume band. 

In accordance with the REACH and CLP regulations, the relevant European Safety Data Sheets were updated in due time to include new REACH registration numbers and, where required, the annex with the Identified Uses and Exposure Scenario. REACH related information may also be found through Dow Answer Center.

Our businesses continue to coordinate efforts to collect and evaluate new toxicology data and information on downstream uses of the chemical substances we manufacture or import. All the new information will be reflected in updated REACH registration dossiers and Safety Data Sheets – where applicable. If there is doubt as to whether a specific use is covered by the Dow REACH registration contact us and we will work with you to clarify any doubts.

Dow products purchased outside the EU may be covered by an Only Representative Trustee (ORT) assigned to cover Dow imports of the same substance. The ORT service is on invitation only. If you are interested in our service please contact Dow.
