    2008: The CASI INSTITUTE has been instrumental in the creation in 2008 of a consortium for assisting the Calcium-Silicon industry to comply with the European REACH Regulation.

    REACH is a European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006). It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The Regualtion entered into force on 1 June 2007 and applies to the entire European Economic Area. It requires companies producing or importing more than 1000 tonnes/year of a substance to register the substance by 30 November 2010 at the latest.


CaSi has been registered on its own for REACH in 2010
