REACH Registration

Who is the registrant in case of toll manufacturing of substances?

A toll manufacturer is normally understood to be a company that manufactures a substance (on its own, in a mixture or in an article) in its own technical facilities following the instructions of a third party in exchange for an economic compensation. The substance is generally put on the market by the third party. This construction is, for example, used for an intermediate step in the production process for which sophisticated equipment is needed (distillation, centrifugation etc.). According to the REACH Regulation, manufacturers of substances are required to register the substances they manufacture above one tonne per year. From this point of view the toll manufacturer is a manufacturer and has to register the substance.
