What is REACH?
REACH (Regulation (EC) 1907/2006) is European Union legislation that deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. It entered into force on 1 June 2007. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the properties of chemical substances.
REACH gives greater responsibility to the industry to manage the risks from products and to provide safety information on substances. Manufacturers and importers are required to submit information on the properties of their chemical substances to a central database run by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki.
As an importer, CBMM Europe BV registered all its imported substances covering all their potential uses in Europe with ECHA, allowing the Company to continue supplying its customers.
CBMM Europe BV is the Substance Information Exchange Forum (SIEF) Formation Facilitator (SFF) and Lead Registrant (LR) for niobium metal,  niobium pentoxide and ANO. More information about these substances and SIEF decisions can be found at the REACH-IT webpage.
(1) the right to refer to studies submitted with the original 2010 dossier are granted free of charge and can be accessed under the “Test Reports” section and (2) the right to refer to new studies for Niobium and Niobium Pentaoxide required by ECHA’s decisions of July 28, 2020 require a Letter of Access which is being managed through Steptoe & Johnson LLP (contact GRosini@Steptoe.com).

Safety Data Sheets (SDS) updated according to REACH and CLP (Classification, Labeling and Packaging) regulations are offered by CBMM for its products. This information is provided to ensure the safe handling and use of the Company's products.
