Description of key information

Additional information

For generating an updated, consistent and well-referenced database on the physico-chemical properties of the substance, a typical sample from the lead registrant was analysed for all parameters relevant for REACH at the Outotec Oy laboratories, Pori, Finland.

Outotec Research Oy has a certified Quality system ISO 9001:2000, Environmental system ISO14001 and Occupational Health and Safety system ISO18001. Laboratory accreditation according to ISO/IEC 17025 covers gas and emission measurements and metal analyses.

Inspecta Sertifiointi Oy evaluates the management systems and FINAS (Finnish Accreditation Service) evaluates the accredited methods. These audits are carried out annually. A couple of internal audits are also done every year, for instance laboratory functions are audited annually. Besides audits, Outotec Research Oy takes part in interlaboratory comparisons concerning metal analytics and emission measurements.

In 2008, Outotec Research Oy took part in the Finnish Excellence Quality Awards and received the prestigious award, "Recognised for Excellence". Outotec Research Oy achieved a score of over 500 points, which entitles the winner to use the five-star Recognised for Excellence, R4E emblem.

By this approach, a consistent, high quality and complete dataset on physicochemical properties of the substance has been established, using state-of-the-art analytical techniques. This updated information is encoded in the IUCLID V format.
