Under the European REACH regulation (nr. 1907/2006), companies that produce and import chemicals are obligated to identify and manage the risks associated with the substances, and take any necessary risk management measures. Every producer must submit a dossier, for each substance, to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki and register the substance in question. This registration is required for the marketing of a residual as a (by-) product.

Here are the ECHA registration numbers for the substances put on the market by Dutch and Flemish drinking water companies:
