Whyte Chemicals to distribute Shell Chemicals' products

REACH

REACH is the new European Community regulation governing the
Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of CHemicals”.

It came into force on June 1st 2007 and replaces multiple European directives and legislation with a single regulation.

Whyte Chemicals started pre-registering its substances on the first day that the ECHA web site went live and continued up until November 28th 2008, by which time we had pre-registered all the products that we are currently dealing in or may have some future interest in. In this way we have not only protected our own market, but also those of our customers and suppliers. We currently have some 1800 substances pre-registered and will provide customers with pre-registration details on request.

We are now working with the SIEFS to ensure that our substances attain registration while at the same time ensuring this is done in a cost effective manner so that we continue to offer our customers competitive products.
