Registration Update - UVCB’s

Over the past 3 months the consortium has been working on updating the following dossiers:

Slags, FeMn-manufacturing 273-728-1 69012-28-8 
Slags, SiMn-manufacturing 273-733-9 69012-33-5 
Manganese ores, reduced 273-748-0 69012-49-3

The dossiers were updated in accordance with the regulators continuous drive for periodic dossier updates, new data (emanating from compliance checks) and in alignment with post registration deadline ECHA guidance documents. The review of new available data, updated use patterns and the use of ECHA guidance led to the classification of all 3 substances which are within the same readacross category. In view of this classification new/updated chemical safety reports, and exposure scenarios have been generated and submitted to the ECHA via dossier updates. 

The secretariat encourages all registrants to update their dossiers accordingly. To this end please request for your updated CSR's and ES by contacting reach@manganese.org
