UVCBs

Other complex substances – inorganic UVCBs (iUVCBs) – generated as by-products from producing and transforming lead are also covered by the Consortium. Where produced and used under Strictly Controlled Conditions, manufacturers and importers may register isolated intermediates with reduced information requirements and lower ECHA fees and must submit detailed information on those means for rigorous containment and to minimise emissions.

Below is a list of iUVCBs for which the Consortium is coordinating REACH activities. The compositions were defined in consultation with the Lead REACH Consortium members, using the highest typical elemental percentages for each constituent.

The Lead REACH Consortium is currently developing new-format Substance Identity Profiles for its iUVCBs, based on a template developed by the Eurometaux Intermediates Taskforce in light of substance ID discussions with ECHA.
