The successful implementation of the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 is important for the aerosol fillers that are 'Downstream Users' under this major piece of chemical legislation.
FEA is a founding member of the Downstream Users of Chemicals Co-ordination group (DUCC) which is an informal platform of European associations representing downstream industries ranging from cosmetics, detergents and aerosols, to paints, adhesives, fragrances, photographic and construction chemicals and chemical distributor industries.
DUCC's main objective is to commonly contribute to the successful implementation of the REACH Regulation's requirements.
FEA interacts with relevant manufacturers and downstream users to ensure the appropriate covering of the propellants and main solvents uses of all aerosol products.
FEA is also an ECHA's accredited stakeholder organisation and provides a focused expertise on an ad hoc base.
