Dossier Updates for Mn salts

The Consortium is in the process of updating the following 3 dossiers - MnCl2 (EC: 231-869-6  Cas:7773-01-5), MnSO4 (EC: 232-089-9 Cas:7785-87-7) and Mn(NO2)3 (EC: 233-828-8 Cas: 10377-66-9). Submitted since 2010, significant amount of available literature, studies and news uses exist, hence in accordance with REACH Annex 22 - 1: following registration, a registrant shall be responsible on his own initiative for updating his registration without undue delay with relevant new information...) these dossiers will be updated by December 15th, 2017 and will trigger the need for the consortium to provide those SIEF members that have registered with the following:

  • ‚ÄčUpdated CSR 
  • Tabular format of ES's to facilitate the production and translation of eSDS's
  • A list of uses advised against

We hope that by January 31st 2018 these updated document will be available for all interested parties.
