RHENIUM INVENTORY (INCLUDING CLASSIFICATIONS):

IDENTIFIED USES OF RHENIUM :

The identified uses of the rhenium 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 Rhenium covered by the PMC.

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

 Ammonium perrhenate uses
 Dirhenium heptasulphide uses
 Perrhenic acid (in solution) uses
 Potassium perrhenate uses
 Rhenium uses
 Sodium rhenate (in aq. solution) uses

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