EC Regulation 1907/2006 (“REACH” or “REACH Regulation”) offers non-EU manufacturers of chemical substances the possibility to appoint an ‘Only Representative’ (OR).
The OR assumes all the responsibilities of an importer under REACH, and all EU importers in the same supply chain of the non-EU manufacturer subsequently become downstream users.
The OR is obliged to keep an up-to-date list of:
- EU importers within the same supply chain of the non-EU manufacturer;
- The tonnage covered for each of these EU importers;
- Information on the supply of the latest update of the safety data sheet.
The two non-EU manufacturers KRONOS CANADA, Inc. (KC) and LOUISIANA PIGMENT COMPANY (LPC) have appointed
KRONOS INTERNATIONAL, Inc. (KII)
as their Only Representative (OR), who assumes the REACH obligations imposed on the importers of products manufactured by KC and LPC.
Furthermore, KRONOS has established an Only Representative Trustee (ORT) system to secure the confidential business information of our customers.
