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.

AquaMinerals has taken care of the registration of the calcium carbonate and aquafer for all of the Dutch, and some foreign, drinking water companies. We also maintain the dossiers containing the company and safety information.

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