Dow: To Leverage REACH Registrations
Shifting its focus from REACH pre-registration to registration, The Dow Chemical Company announced that it has established the Dow Only Representative Trustee (ORT) to leverage REACH registrations and thereby reduce costs all along its supply chains.
Under some specific conditions, the Dow ORT can offer to use the Dow registrations to cover under REACH the so called ‘indirect imports” of Dow substances by European Union (EU) importers. To ensure confidentiality of customers’ business information, Dow has selected PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory N.V. in the Netherlands to operate as the Trustee. With the Only Representative Trustee solution, Dow would enable its selected direct non-EU customers and indirect EU customers (importers) to avoid excessive REACH compliance costs.
