LONDON (ICIS news)--A seven-company consortium that includes Evonik Degussa GmbH and Cabot Corp has successfully submitted the Reach dossier for carbon black to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), the consortium members said over the weekend.

The submission included the technical dossier for the product and a chemical safety report. It has been validated by the ECHA and given a registration number. Evonik Degussa GmbH acted as the lead registrant.

The remaining consortium members now have to file their supplementary registration documents to ensure they are all fully registered ahead of the November 2010 Reach registration deadline.

Reach is the EU’s chemicals registration, evaluation and authorisation legislation.

The consortium has invited other interested companies to participate in the joint submission for carbon black by way of a letter of access.

The consortium members are Evonik Degussa, Cabot Corp, Columbian Chemicals Co, Timcal Belgium SA, Sid Richardson Carbon & Energy Co, Continental Carbon Co, and Cancarb Ltd.
