1,2-dichloroethane (EDC) REACH Consortium
The manufacturers of 1,2-dichloroethane (EDC) have joined efforts for their REACH compliance activities and have launched in February 2009 the EDC REACH consortium.
The consortium members agreed to cooperate in the preparation of a REACH Registration dossier for EDC as intermediate (Annex VII) as well as non-intermediate (Annex X) with a hazard assessment and CSA/CSR. Harmonised classification and labelling will be provided. EDC is a CMR cat 2 (Carc. 1B under CLP). The consortium is managed by ReachCentrum.
