The registration dossiers of Au and Au compounds (except Tetrachloroauric acid) have been finalized in 2016. The registration of Tetrachloroauric acid should be finalized by end of Q3 2017. The maintenance of the dossiers will start in 2018. A Dossier Evaluation is expected due to the submission of testing proposals.

GOLD & GOLD COMPOUNDS INVENTORY (INCLUDING CLASSIFICATIONS) AND ID CARDS:

IDENTIFIED USES OF GOLD :

The identified uses of the gold substances registered by the PMC have been covered in Exposure Scenarios (ES) when needed. These Exposure Scenarios are not only a requirement for the REACH registration dossiers but must also be communicated down the supply chain to downstream users (DU) via the Extended Safety Data Sheets (eSDS).

Once a DU has received the eSDS, they need to:

  • Check whether it covers their use
  • Check whether the conditions of safe use correspond to the operational conditions and risk management measures implemented at their site.

This section of the website has been developed to assist in the communication along the supply chain. It provides to all PMC members but also downstream users and potential new co-registrants with the most recent list of identified uses and versions of existing DU ES extracted from the chemical safety reports (CSR) of gold and gold compounds covered by the PMC.

You will find below the list of identified uses (and Exposure Scenarios when relevant) by substance.

 Aurio(1+) 2,6,6-trimethylbicyclo[3.1.1 ] heptanethiolate uses
Balsams, copaiba, sulfurized, mixed with turpentine, gold salts uses
Gold uses
Tetrachloroauric acid uses

If your use is not covered or if you need more information, please do not hesitate to  contact us.
