Applicability of REACH on lubricant preparations

A lubricant formulation generally consists of many individual substances. These include the base liquid and a number of different additives, neutralizing agent, etc. The individual substances conforming to the new EU chemicals legislation (REACH) will be registered in the future. The extent of the amount of data that needs to be reported for each substance depends on the manufactured / imported quantity. REACH is a substance based system, ie mixtures (preparations) of substances are in principle not registered. Expressly exempted from registration are polymers. The provisions of REACH for exemption from the registration requirement (s. Annex V) sit on the EU Directive 67/548 / EEC (EINECS = European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical) to.
The registration requirement is generally subject to all substances. For new substances that have been registered since 1981 in ELINCS (European List of Notified Chemical Substances), can be assumed that a complete data exists. A preparation as such (and therefore a preparation of old materials) is not covered by the registration provisions facts moderately. Preparations are neither subject to registration nor registration capable. You are also only in exceptional cases a disclosure requirement, where this is regulated by a special legal regulation (eg. As for biocidal products). Reaction products that are formed during the production, storage and intended use of a preparation are, only register if it concerns a specific chemical reaction. . The Annex V of the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 describes the exemption for substances that are exempted from the registration requirement, as follows:
"4. Substances which are not themselves manufactured, imported or placed on the market and which result from a chemical reaction that has occurred in the following cases:
a) a stabilizer, dye, flavor, antioxidant, filler, solvent, carrier, surface active agents, plasticizers, corrosion inhibitors, anti-foaming agents, dispersing agents, precipitation inhibitors, drying agents, binder, emulsifier, demulsifier, dewatering agents, agglomerating agents, adhesion promoters, flow auxiliaries, pH neutralizing agents, lubricant, chelating agent, or quality control reagent performs its intended function. "
Therefore, in the lubricants sector all materials used in the recipes must be registered, including those specifically formed during the production of the lubricant materials, eg certain thickener in fats, so called. "Identified substances". While the raw materials used must be registered by their respective manufacturers or importers, the substances specifically produced in lubricant production is usually provided by lubricant producers have to register himself.

This paper represents the views of experts of the VSI and the UNITI, but does not guarantee that legal certainty. VSI and UNITI are the professional associations of lubricants manufacturing and trading with these companies in the petroleum industry. We refer in this connection to the BDI-help and here specifically to 3.1.3 "obligations of downstream users - formulators of preparations" 3.1.4 "Rights downstream user" 3.3.1 "industry aid - Obligations of the manufacturers and users of lubricants"

"... The REACH Regulatory Committee on 05.02.2015 a draft for the adaptation of the REACH Regulation regarding Annex II" has agreed requirements for the preparation of Safety Data Sheet ". Background: In the CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, published in December 2008, 5 Changes to the old Annex II of the REACH Regulation are in Article 59, paragraph defines the contact into force 1 June 2015... In May 2010, the old Annex II of the REACH Regulation by Regulation (EU) 453/2010 has been amended; Annex II to Regulation (EU) 453/2010 also enter into force 1 June 2015. The amendments to REACH Annex II by the CLP Regulation and Regulation (EU) 453/2010, which come into force respectively on 1 June 2015. have led to some contradictions. For clarification, the EU Commission has therefore prepared a draft regulation with a new text for Annex II, which is to be applied from 1 June 2015 ... "
