Manganese ores, reduced (EC: 273-748-0; Cas: 69012-49-3)

Submitted in 2010, with no testing proposals, this substance has not undergone any aspect of the REACH evaluation process to date.

So far, the reveiw of the orginal 2010 dossier  along side post 2010 ECHA guidance documents on substance ID, has led to a slight change on the SIP/Boundary composition. 

New updated 2019 SIP/Boundary composition:

Boundary Composition
Component Silicon Dioxide Aluminium Oxide Barium Oxide Calcium Oxide Iron & Oxides of Iron Manganese and oxides of Manganese    

(% w/w) (Range)

8.5 (5-10)

7.5 (5-10)

0 (0-1)

3 (1-10)

8 (5-15)

50 (45-60)



While this dossier has not undergone any compliance check request from the ECHA , other UVCB substances in thesame readacross category required significant dossier updates and testing request from ECHA. 

In view of the newly generated serrogate data, this dossier has been updated in Q3, 2020. The updated dossier has an updated self classifcation for pre-natal development emanating from the a pre-natal developmental toxicity study on readacross substance FeMn slag.  To this end, a new/updated CSR   and ES has been generated. 

The secretariat therefore encourages all registrants to update their dossiers accordingly. Please request your updated CSR's and ES by contacting reach@manganese.org

Note: Post 2018, the consortium will no longer invoice co-registrants  for ECHA requested studies retrospectively. All compliance check related work will require co-registrants to contribute their share before any dossier update work can begin.
