Review of product uses
To comply with the requirements of the REACH regulation, Shell chemicals companies registered their products before 1 December 2010, in line with the volume bandings specified in the REACH regulation. The registrations are for specific uses of these products.
“All downstream users of products should be aware that they shall handle products in accordance with the product-specific use information provided by suppliers in product safety data sheets following registration. In addition, for those products that are hazardous, safe handling procedures to limit exposure to humans and the environment are to be implemented. Safe handling procedures for registered uses are described in the exposure scenarios annexed to the new product safety data sheets” Article 37 (4) of the REACH regulation
Downstream users of our products are responsible for reviewing the product-specific use information and safe handling procedures in our safety data sheets and deciding whether it describes the way in which they use Shell Chemicals products. If this is the case, there is no need for further action.
