At Dow Corning we recognize that there may be concerns with REACh registration for products sold through the XIAMETER® brand. Regardless of the brand through which our products are sold, all products will be covered for REACh as indicated below.
Products supplied from our plants and warehouses within the EU:
As a customer of one of Dow Corning’s European Union (EU) entities, you are considered a Downstream User under REACH. As a Downstream User, your purchases from these EU entities will continue to be covered under REACH for supported uses throughout the relevant phase-in period.
Dow Corning and XIAMETER® have pre/registered all the substances for which we have responsibility to do so under REACH, and we have requested from our suppliers that all substances in raw materials are pre/registered. The result is that regardless of the brand through which our products are sold,
Dow Corning and XIAMETER® continue to offer an extensive product range. Our cross-functional team of experts continues to work on the requirements of REACH to ensure compliant supply of any new product offerings. Further information can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions in the REACH Resource Center.
Products supplied from outside the EU:
Dow Corning is likely to be able to cover imports into the EU of its materials contained in direct or indirect customers’ products. Our Only Representative "Dow Corning Europe SA" or our suppliers’ Only Representatives have pre/registrations in place that can cover importers’ REACH obligations.
