The European REACH Grease Thickeners Consortium (ERGTC) intend to prepare sector specific guidance on the handling of substances which are manufactured in situ in base oil. The ERGTC have prepared a brief article to inform relevant stakeholders of their intention to produce sector specific guidance, its purpose and what type of information it will include. It also provides some detail on the ERGTC’s REACH registration strategy which takes into consideration the bioavailability of the substances, an approach that may also be relevant for other types of substances. The article was published in Eurogrease and in Lube magazine. If you have any comments questions or queries regarding this guidance, please email for additional information.
