2020 GA Meeting May 6th in Kristiansand (KRS), Norway


The 2019 GA meeting which took place on Wednesday 8 May 2019 in Madrid, Spain was a resounding success. Hosted by FerroGlobe, the meeting which lasted 4 hours saw several deliberations related to the consortium governace, dossier updates and classification & labelling. Some key decisions taken by way of vote are as follows:

Some highlights:

  • Executive Committee: A new Chairmanand  a new 2nd Vice Chairman were appointed, meanwhile the 1st Vice Chiarman was maintained to enure continuity 
  • Dossier updates: Reveal changes in classification and labelling if compared to the 2010 submitted dossiers
  • Approval of the 2018 workplan and budget
  • Brexit and data: Mara will continue to support REACH registration inside and outside the EU (UK REACH inclusive) but at a charge yet to be determined 

Successful submissions: Compliance checks accepted

After successfully submitting 13 lead dossiers, 5 of the registration dossiers entered the second phase of REACH evaluation. The 5 substances involved in the dossier evaluation process are MnO2 (EC: 215-202-6), SiMn slag (EC: 273-733-9), FeMn slag (EC: 273-728-1), MnCO3 (EC: 209-942-9), and Mn3O4 (215-266-5). Complying with the evaluation request has certainly kept the Mn Consortium very busy over the past few years.

The consortium is therefore very proud to announce the successful completion, submission, and acceptance of 3 out of the 5 registration dossiers (MnO2, SiMn slag, and MnCO3) under the relevant compliance check rules.

Work is ongoing for the remaining 2 substances, Mn3O4 and FeMn slag, with submission scheduled for Q4 2017.
