The maintenance of the dossiers started in 2018. Dossier Evaluation is expected due to testing proposal submitted for Rh III compounds on genotoxicity.

Check our registration status and timeline:



The identified uses of the rhodium 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 rhodium covered by the EPMF.

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

 Carbonyl(pentane-2,4-dionato-O,O’)(triphenylphosphine)rhodium uses
 Carbonylhydrotris(triphenylphosphine)rhodium uses
 Di-µ-chloro-bis(hapto-1,5-cyclooctadiene)dirhodium(I) uses
 Diammonium sodium hexakis(nitrito-N)rhodate uses
 Dicarbonyl(pentane-2,4-dionato-O,O’)rhodium uses
 Dirhodium trioxide uses
 Dirhodium trisulphate uses
 Rhodium uses
 Rhodium (III) acetate uses
 Rhodium trichloride (hydrate) uses
 Rhodium trihydroxide uses
 Rhodium triiodide uses
 Rhodium trinitrate uses
 Rhodium tris(2-ethylhexanoate) (in solution) uses
 Tris(triphenylphosphine) rhodium (I) chloride uses

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