2018 GA meeting: May 3rd in Belgium

2017 GA MEETING

The 2017 GA meeting took place on Thursday 4 May 2017 in Karlsruhe, Germany and was a resounding success with attendance reaching 60%, the highest since 2010. Hosted by Cronimet Holding GmbH, the meeting lasted 5 hours and saw several key decisions taken by way of vote.

Some highlights:

  • Change of Governance: Election of Tim Hird (Prince-Erachem) as Chairman; Dr Bernd Friede (Elkem) as First Vice Chair; Arnaud Vigier (Eramet) as Second Vice Chair; and Dr Doreen McGough (MARA) as Secretary General
  • Approval of an established SIEF data-sharing model in accordance with regulation 2016/9
  • Approval of the 2017 workplan and budget
  • Approval of plan to share consortium-owned OECD/GLP studies for K-REACH registration purposes

Successful submissions: Compliance checks accepted

After successfully submitting 13 lead dossiers, 5 of the registration dossiers entered the second phase of REACH evaluation. The 5 substances involved in the dossier evaluation process are MnO2 (EC: 215-202-6), SiMn slag (EC: 273-733-9), FeMn slag (EC: 273-728-1), MnCO3 (EC: 209-942-9), and Mn3O4 (215-266-5). Complying with the evaluation request has certainly kept the Mn Consortium very busy over the past few years.

The consortium is therefore very proud to announce the successful completion, submission, and acceptance of 3 out of the 5 registration dossiers (MnO2, SiMn slag, and MnCO3) under the relevant compliance check rules.

Work is ongoing for the remaining 2 substances, Mn3O4 and FeMn slag, with submission scheduled for Q4 2017.
