The impact of REACH on ExxonMobil
REACH is consistent with our existing philosophy of using science to understand the risks associated with the products we sell and then communicating these to our customers. To ensure compliance with REACH, ExxonMobil established a dedicated REACH integration team to co-ordinate and integrate activities across the Corporation. While the REACH Regulation creates a large effort, ExxonMobil has the resources and the commitment that is required under REACH. We will continue to work actively with industry associations such as CEFIC and CONCAWE to support initiatives to continue improving the REACH Regulation and ensure practical handling with minimal disruption to ExxonMobil or our customers’ and suppliers’ operations.
Under EU REACH, ExxonMobil successfully completed more than 600 registrations for over 200 substances. We are well positioned to continue registering substances, when required, for new imports and/or new substances manufactured in the EU or under emerging REACH-like regulations. More information on ExxonMobil Registration can be found on ExxonMobil registration status.
One important element of the registration dossier is information on uses and exposure scenarios for hazardous substances. More information on this topic can be found at ExxonMobil use communication.
ExxonMobil has updated its Safety Data Sheets with relevant REACH registration information, including uses and exposure scenarios for hazardous products. The latest updates of Safety Data Sheets for ExxonMobil products are available online.
REACH is not over, and the REACH Regulation will continue to require large effort and commitment of resources. Through the development and deployment of internal standard tools and processes, we are well positioned to comply with the REACH regulation today and tomorrow. ExxonMobil will keep resources in place to ensure we not only continue to comply with REACH, but also stay well positioned to take up challenges following any new requirement triggering additional compliance actions.
