To comply with the REACH regulation it is required to submit to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) extensive technical dossiers about each substance. For many years the Members of ACPA (Activated Carbon Producers Association) have jointly worked to develop best practices.

Given this, it was decided to form a consortium outside of the ACPA sector group, with the purpose of registering Activated Carbon under REACH as covered by the association's work in the past.

Companies that wish to register Activated Carbon (High Density Skeleton and/or Low Density Skeleton ) can either join the Consortium, or purchase a Letter of Access to the dossier(s).

Relevant information can be found on the Consortium website:

It has to be noted that all members of ACPA are in full compliance with their REACH obligations.
