IMOA, via its initiative the REACH Molybdenum Consortium (MoCon), has generated an extensive dataset of physico-chemical data, environmental and human health effects data about molybdenum/molybdenum compounds. It enabled the Consortium members, and Letter of Access purchasers, to achieve EU REACH compliance. The Korean Ministry of Environment is now requiring similar data for compliance with data requirements of their chemicals management legislation, known as Korea-REACH, or K-REACH, which comes into force on 1 January 2015.
Korean IMOA-members, and likewise non-IMOA members active in manufacturing/importing molybdenum products in Korea, are invited to contact IMOA to explore potential data-sharing of the MoCon molybdate effects dataset for the purpose of your compliance with K-REACH data requirements. Data-sharing is fee based.
The first priority list of chemicals for assessment, in Korean, with a translation into English, was published on 31 October 2014 by the Korean Ministry of Environment.
It is also known as the ‘Phase-In Substances Subject to Registration’ List (PSSR).
No molybdenum compounds are listed.
