All registration dossiers of Pd and Pd compounds have been registered and can be submitted by co-registrants. The maintenance of the dossiers started in 2018.

The identified uses of the palladium substances registered by the EPMF 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 EPMF 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 palladium and palladium compounds covered by the EPMF

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

 Diamminedichloropalladium uses
 Diammonium hexachloropalladate uses
 Dichlorobis (triphenylphosphine) palladium uses
 Dihydrogen tetrachloropalladate(2-) (in solution) uses
 Dipotassium hexachloropalladate uses
 Disodium tetrachloropalladate uses
 Palladium uses
