We are committed to continued compliance with the terms of REACH.
Since its inception, we've worked hard to understand the impact of REACH and ensure we remain compliant. As raw material suppliers, the most important requirement of REACH is undoubtedly registration.
We have completed pre-registrations for all our own manufactured and imported products and are focused on working with our supply chain to ensure any materials obtained from within the EU satisfy the REACH criteria. We have completed all the required registrations for the 2010 and 2013 deadlines and we are on course to finalise all necessary registrations for the 2018 deadline.
Flavours for end use in foods and beverages are exempt from registration, as are materials for pharmaceutical products. However, fragrance and cosmetic ingredients (including flavours for oral care) do fall under registration obligations. Consumer uses of flavours and fragrances for cosmetics and personal care are out of the scope of REACH's chemical safety assessment, however. We hope to register all such materials which exceed the tonnage threshold without ceasing supply due to REACH.
Registration exemption is permitted in Annex V part 9 of the regulation which includes vegetable oils without hazard classification or classifications limited to flammability (H224,H225,H226), skin irritant (H315) or eye irritant (H319). This exemption applies to all of Earthoil's range of vegetable oils. Our Treattarome range of products are also exempt from registration under Annex V part eight.
One step ahead
We have adopted a leading role in preparing citrus oils registrations in our position as coordinating company of the Citrus Consortium. Under the umbrella of the European Federation of Essential Oils' (EFEO) REACH program, this consortium has already completed registrations for all the eligible citrus oils (orange, lemon, bitter orange, lime, grapefruit, tangerine and mandarin).
We have also informed our suppliers/lead registrants for all relevant substances of the IFRA standard use mapping for fragrance ingredients regarding the identified uses of our products.
