Substances & Lead Registrants

The Tungsten Consortium acts as SIEF Formation Facilitator on behalf of the Lead Registrants for the following substances:

 

Substance NameEINECS No (EC No) CAS NoHighest Tonnage Bands for Joint Submissions (to register as a substance)Lead Registrants

Iron 231-096-4 7439-89-6 >1,000tpa Arranged by Iron Platform
Tungsten Metal 231-143-9 7440-33-7 >1,000tpa Previously Plansee SE and CERATUNGSTEN S.a.r.l has become new Lead Registrant in January 2013.

As a general rule, there will be one SIEF for each phase-in substance.  In the first instance, Pre-Registrants of substances with the same identification had to establish whether their substances are indeed the same for the purpose of SIEF formation and registration.  Reference is made to emails to all pre-registrants of the nine substances earlier this year, especially the sameness surveys conducted in March and April 2009, after which "sameness" was established.

SIEFs have been formed for each tungsten substance and a web-based forum has gone live for each of these.  Login details have been sent by email to all SIEF members on 16 July 2009.  Please contact the Consortium Secretariat - info@itia.info for further information.
