Welcome to the SIEF webpage for Vanadium Dioxide

(Vanadium Dioxide, EINECS No. 234-841-1)

Please proceed to:

Pre-registrants for Divanadium Tetraoxide (CAS No. 12036-73-6) may agree that they manufacture, intend to manufacture or import a substance that is sufficiently similar to Vanadium Dioxide (EINECS No. 234-841-1) to allow read-across and to merge into one SIEF.

SIEF – Who is who?

  • Lead Registrant: GfE Metalle und Materialien GmbH
  • SIEF Facilitator: Vanadium Consortium on behalf of the Lead Registrant.
  • Pre-registrants can participate in the SIEF at different activity levels: very active, involved, passive, and dormant.
  • The Vanadium Consortium is preparing the registration dossier, i.e. the IUCLID file, in cooperation with the SIEF. The Lead Registrant will submit the REACh Registration Dossier. All other co-registrants will refer to it when submitting their registration.

SIEF Time table:

  • September 2011:
    • All pre-registrants for Vanadium Dioxide were invited to participate in the Substance Sameness Survey.
  • October -December 2011:
    • The SIEF was formed. The Lead registrant was elected.
    • Respondents that participated in the Sameness Survey are considered to be Active Members of the SIEF. The Secretariat of the Vanadium Consortium will work with Active Members within each SIEF.

      • Data gap analysis (read-across, derogation/waiving):  Ongoing
      • Commissioning / monitoring / auditing of experimental studies:  Ongoing
      • Technical Dossier / IUCLID compilation:  Ongoing
      • Identification of uses / tonnage bands (questionnaire surveys):  Ongoing
      • Environmental exposure (emissions data collection):  Ongoing
      • Human exposure (workplace, consumer, indirect):  Ongoing
      • Chemical Safety Assessment (CSA):  Ongoing
      • Preparation / Submission / Defence of Registration Dossier:  Ongoing
  • Get involved:

The Secretariat of the Vanadium Consortium will work with Active Members within each SIEF.
1. If you would like to become an Active Member, please E-mail the SIEF Facilitator.

2. Visit the Vanadium Consortium website page for progress updates.

3. Join the Vanadium Consortium. 


If you are not interested in joining the Vanadium Consortium, you will be able to access the technical dossier for this substance to do your REACH registration by means of a Letter of Access (LoA) on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms. You will be able to purchase an LoA from the Vanadium Consortium. An LoA will grant you the ‘permission to refer’ to the technical dossier for REACH registration. The cost of a Letter of Access will be dependent on the data requirements according to the respective tonnage band.
