Pareri adottati e consultazioni precedenti sulle domande di autorizzazione


This page provides further information on the applications for authorisation or review reports, which have undergone 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

Anthracene oil

CAS Number
Entry Nr in Annex XIV
Use name
Use of AO for manufacture of formulations for various industrial uses
Broad information on use applied for (conditions of use and function)

Anthracene oil (low, with benzo[a]pyrene concentration below 0.005%) (AO) is produced by coal tar distillation and used at the site of manufacture for producing formulations, which are then used for intermediate uses in the EEA (i.e. mainly as carbon black feedstock). The formulation for biocidal use of EU-type creosote is not covered by the current application as the use in biocidal products is regulated according to the Biocidal Products Regulation and is exempt from REACH authorisation.

Technical function: AO has no independent function at the formulation stage. The substance functions are relevant during the subsequent uses of the produced mixture at the downstream users' sites, which are not covered by this application for authorisation.

Conditions of use: all formulation processes are conducted in a closed system and via closed lines, exhaust gases are collected from all tanks and loading stations and incinerated onsite. Process water is treated onsite and then sent to an external STP.

Annual tonnage used: 10 000 - 100 000

Number of sites: 1

Review period requested: 12 years
