 FEDERCHIMICA

FEDERCHIMICA is the abbreviated name of the Italian Federation of the chemical industry. Founded as the Italian Federation of Chemical Industry Associations in 1920, it became Aschimici in 1945 and was transformed into Federchimica in 1984.

At the present time 1300 companies, with a total of 94.000 employees, are part of Federchimica. They are grouped into 16 Associations, which in turn are subdivided into 43 product groups. Federchimica is a member of Confindustria (General Confederation of the Italian Industry) and CEFIC (European Chemical Industry Council).

Federchimica, whose primary objectives are the coordination and the protection of the role of the Italian chemical industry as well as the promotion of its development capacity, has the following main duties:

  • to elaborate guidelines in economic, industrial and trade union matters and also in the areas of environment, innovation and energy policies;
  • to promote these policies with Public Authorities, national economic organisations, other entrepreneurial organisations, international organisations to whom the Federation belongs, trade union leaders, environmental and consumer organisations;
  • to support Italian chemical companies in the implementation of the European/National Legislation (in particular, the new European Regulation 1907/2006 REACH concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals);
  • to contribute to the establishment of an accurate image of the chemical industry in the public opinion;
  • to carry out studies and projects which inspire and legitimise entrepreneurial choice;
  • to contribute to the constant promotion of the level of quality of the companies associated, with a particular attention to the organisation of initiatives in the field of innovation.

FEDERCHIMICA is responsible for the following actions: ACTION 1: Survey of current methods for the compliance to the REACH legislation
