The members of the Inorganic Pigments Consortium collaborate in order to comply jointly with the requirements of the REACH Regulation for registration and pre-registration of substances.
With this objective the Inorganic Pigments Consortium was created on July 10th, 2008 under the legal form of a European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG), with headquarters in Castellon, Spain. Currently 26 companies are part of the Consortium as a Regular Members, plus some of their Affiliates, grouping the major European manufacturers/importers of inorganic pigments. The total number of substances covered by this Consortium is 46 inorganic pigments, with different Einecs numbers.
Members of the Consortium are at the same time SIEF facilitators for the majority of the pigments, for this reason the Consortium manages the contacts between the different legal entities that take part in each SIEF. Information on the progress in each one of the SIEFs can be found in the corresponding section (Substances & SIEF). Any company that is not part of the Inorganic Pigments Consortium can check the information on each specific SIEF and contact the facilitator if necessary.
The Consortium Members undertake to pursue collectively, among other things, the following objectives:
Work related to the pre-registration of the inorganic pigments (SIEF); Compile and assess existing studies and information, as well as to prepare proposals for new studies avoiding the use of vertebrate animals; Prepare the complete registration dossier; Develop a uniform classification and labelling; Coordinate the submission of the complete registration dossier by the lead registrant, as well as the individual dossier of the other members participating in the joint submission.
This Consortium has a General Assembly, Steering Committee, Technical Subcommittee, Secretary, Technical Manager, Accountant, Financial Auditor and Trustee.
Under the substances & SIEF list, information for each pigment can be found, including a detailed description of the substance, the legal entity acting as lead registrant, expected date for registration, classification and labeling considerations following the CLP regulation, among others.
