Higher Methacrylate REACH Task Force

REACH is the European Union (EU) regulation for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. It entered into force on 1st June 2007 with the objective to protect human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.

The Higher Methacrylate REACH Task Force (HMRTF), also comprised of MPA member companies as well as other manufacturers in the EU and Japan (including: BASF SE, The Dow Chemical Company, Evonik Resource Efficiency, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation and Röhm1), completed the registration of the many higher methacrylates (as follows):
