Adopted opinions and previous consultations on applications for authorisation

Adopted opinions and previous consultations on applications for authorisation

 

This page provides further information on the applications for authorisation or review reports, which have undergone public consultation. The applications for authorisation are in the opinion development phase until the final opinions of the Committees for Risk Assessment and Socio-economic Analysis have been adopted and sent to the European Commission. The European Commission's decision-making process can be followed through the comitology register, where further information is published about the REACH Committee's past and upcoming meetings.

Substance Details

Name
Chromium trioxide
EC Number
215-607-8
CAS Number
1333-82-0
Entry Nr in Annex XIV
16
Use name
Formulation of mixtures
Broad information on use applied for (conditions of use and function)
This use presents the formulation of proprietary chromium-based mixtures, in liquid or solid forms, using chromium trioxide combined with other chemical substances and/or compounds. Formulation of chromium trioxide–containing mixtures is generally a batch process. This scenario addresses proprietary formulation by stand-alone formulators. On-site formulation (i.e. mixing) at industrial sites prior to surface treatment activities is not included in this scenario. Technical function: Chromium trioxide has no independent function at the formulation stage. The substance function is relevant during the subsequent uses of the produced mixture at the downstream users' sites. Annual tonnage used: approximately 9000 tonnes of chromium trioxide, equivalent to 4500 tonnes of Cr (VI).
Requested review period: 12 years
