Cobalt REACH Consortium

Three REACH Consortia have been established by the Board of the Cobalt Institute (CI) to implement REACH (Registration Evaluation Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) on behalf of the cobalt industry, with the purpose of preparing the registration dossiers for cobalt and cobalt compounds.

A separate wholly-owned subsidiary of the Cobalt Institute called CoRC (Cobalt REACH Consortium Ltd.) acts as the Secretariat to the Consortia. Both the Cobalt Institute and CoRC are non-profit organizations.

CoRC has now completed the REACH registration of the many cobalt substances covered by the three consortia.

CoRC encourages wide membership and active participation in the consortia activities. Interested companies with several cobalt substances are invited to consider joining one or more of the consortia. For further information visit the CoRC website.
