Manufacturers and importers are required to gather information on the properties of their chemical substances to allow safe handling, and to register the information in a central database run by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

Letter of Access:
The Titanium Metal Consortium has
approved the Letter of Access agreement, of which a URL link is provided below for your
immediate reference. The fees associated with the letter of
access (LOA) are based upon the preliminary response from the sameness
surveys. If we receive more definitive feedback from the SIEF this would
precipitate a more accurate prediction of revenues and may possibly reduce the
fees for all if there is indeed a revenue surplus.
The fee structure for the LOA is based on 4 tonnage
|Level of Compensation
|> 1000 tonnes
|Between 100 - 1,000
metric tonnes per annum
|Between 10 – 100 tonnes
|Below 10 tonnes per
For SIEF members who are not full members of the Consortium,
the LOA should be applied for and issued to each legal entity which is planning
to register titanium. The letter of access includes access to the
Chemical Safety Report and Guidance on safe use.
