We at EMD Performance Materials stand behind our pigments every step of the way from development up to delivery to you – our customers. The Regulatory Affairs managers are responsible for legal and safety issues relating to our technical pigments. In this capacity, they ensure that the statutory regulations are met. Their tasks also include substance registration in accordance with REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemical Substances), ensuring the legal conformity of pigments in new application areas, raw material safety evaluations based on toxicological and ecotoxicological data as well as the environmental relevance of our pigments.
EMD Performance Materials works with national and international regulatory authorities, chemical industry associations (VCI, CEFIC) as well as scientific working groups. In addition, we are represented in the Association of Pigment Manufacturers/Mineral Colors and in the international working groups of the national pigment associations.
Furthermore, we support you when it comes to approval processes and general safety-relevant matters. EMD Performance Materials will inform you of the chemical inventory status of the pigment ingredients in the eight most important chemical inventories worldwide.
