REACH Metals Gateway

Iron [Fe]

Eurofer's plan to host the Iron & Steel Cooperation Platform has been abandoned in favour of working in smaller more manageable clusters based primarily on the iron and steel production routes/steel types. The clusters consist of groups of EU steel producers for integrated steel & iron; stainless, special steels and special alloys (S4A); and EAF carbon steel. In order to assist its members in their implementation of REACH, Eurofer has set up a REACH Forum. See and for the Eurofer secretariat

“A REACH iron consortium (known as the Iron Platform) was established by the International Pig Iron Association and others. The Iron Platform has its website at from which the consortium agreement and many guidance documents can be downloaded. For additional information, please contact Mr. Chris Barrington at   Registration dossiers have been submitted for all substances and letters of access are available via the website portal.”  

For ferro-alloys, please refer to the respective non-ferrous substance consortia.
