Welcome to the LOA (Lower Olefins and Aromatics) REACH Consortium website

This website is intended to provide some general information on the Consortium, its objectives and scope, the substances which were registered in 2010, costs of letters of access for those substances and instructions on how to join any of the Joint Submission Groups (JSGs) currently managed by the LOA REACH Consortium.

Letters of Access

Procedure for Obtaining Letters of Access

If you need a letter of access, please contact the JSG Manager by email at jsg.manager@loa-reach.com. You will then be provided with the latest JSG Agreement which will require you to provide the following information:

Once the JSG Agreement has been signed and submitted you will receive an invoice which you must pay within 14 days of the invoice date. When the funds have cleared in the LOA REACH Consortium bank account, the JSG Manager will create you an account for the JSG portal in Active Steward where you will be able to access the registration materials.

Please note that the process of obtaining a letter of access usually takes between 1 and 3 weeks to complete.

Letters of Access – Prices

The costs of a letter access are detailed below.

N.B. Under the LOA REACH Consortium cost-sharing model, registrants will be required to share in future costs that effect the substances they have registered. Such costs have previously been shared among the LOA members only, but the increased financial burden placed on it by ECHA testing requirements and issues such as the Xylenes CoRAP, One Substance One Registration (OSOR) and the Benzene OEL, means that these costs must now be shared by all effected registrants. For more information on the LOA cost-sharing model and a breakdown of how costs are divided please contact project.officer@loa-reach.com
