UK-REACH registration of ethanol, vinasses and fusel oil
The Ethanol-REACH Association prepared and submitted the EU-REACH registration for Ethanol and two associated substances (vinasses and fusel oil) for the appropriate deadlines of regulation 1907/2006, and since then manages membership of the joint registrations and the dossiers, keeping them up to date with EU-REACH developments.
Classification proposal for Ethanol

Message from the new Secretary General
As I am sure you are aware, ethanol is a key active component of hand sanitisers used throughout the health care industry. Whilst the Ethanol REACH Association represents and supports EU manufactures and importers of ethanol who need to register under REACH, such a registration does not cover supply of ethanol as an active biocide/disinfectant.
As of 25th May 2018, the new European privacy rules, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will apply throughout the EU. The GDPR imposes restrictions and conditions on the recording, holding and processing of personal data.
