Company Announces First REACH Registration of Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes

On October 13, 2016, OCSiAl announced that it is the first manufacturer of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) to complete Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) registration. See http://ocsial.com/en/news/217/ According to OCSiAl, the registration was successfully completed thanks to the collaboration between OCSiAl's Health and Safety Department, Envigo, and Intertek, which jointly completed the work involved in demonstrating compliance with the standards and requirements of REACH. Envigo's press release states that scientists at OCSiAl, Envigo, and Intertek collaborated to research and test the potentially hazardous properties of SWCNTs. See http://www.envigo.com/press-news/2016/envigo-collaboration-with-ocsial-and-intertek.aspx These efforts resulted in a technical and highly detailed analysis of SWCNTs and their nature and potential risks, as well as specifications for particular methods of risk management.
