More than 20 European companies and groups of companies have agreed to set up a consortium for the authorization of chromium trioxide, according to the website Chemicalwatch.com

The group plans to publish a consortium agreement on January 15. Manufacturers, importers and downstream users who wish to obtain authorization for chromium trioxide are invited to sign by March 15.

The consortium will give participants access to authorisation dossiers for the following seven uses:

  • Formulation of preparations
  • Functional chrome plating
  • Decorative plating
  • Other surface treatment WITH Chromium VI present on the end product
  • Other surface treatment WITH NO Chromium VI present at detection limit on the end product
  • Catalysts
  • Small scale laboratory use

 

Consortium costs will be divided into common costs and cost per use. Costs will be substantially different for companies per their size; larger companies will be forced to pay more – this, they hope, will encourage more, particularly smaller, companies to sign up to the agreement.
