Our Organization, ZINC INDUSTRIAS NAC IONALES S.A., - “ZINSA”, is a
Non Ferrous products manufacture r a nd exports its worldwide to more
than 47 countries directly to end-use rs, traders or through a gents.
One of our main products is Zinc Oxide and a lmost 35% of our
production is exported to Europe, a nd obviously to the EU. ( Belgium,
The Nethe rlands, Germany, Spain, France, U. K., Irela nd, Italy, U. K.).
Also we export to non EU member states that a lso trade & distrubute
this raw mate rial to EU members (suc h as Switze rla nd, Czech Re public,
Poland, Norway) .
We have read the complete REACH-project pape r a nd we think that it will
bring many problems not only to us but to all our c ustomers, distributors
and e nd-users in the EU.
Some of these problems will be :
- We would possibly have to sell our mate ria l at a much higher price
due to the costs involved registering your product. This could the n
have the effect that our prices could be uncompetitive in Europea n
market and we could lose conside rable business and EU importers
will also lose competitiveness with a n expe nsive ra w mate rial.
- The registration costs will cause that we have to lose staff
members and employees in orde r to cover the costs of re giste ring.
- Smaller manufactures of certa in products outside the EU could go
out of business and large European manufactu re rs that can a fford
the registration costs would dominate the European ma rket a nd
inc rease prices to whatever level they wish.
- All this reasons will lead to the c losing of severa l companies in the
European market and there fore many people will loose the ir jobs.
- It will restrict Free Trade among foreign countries (Latin Ame rica,
Andean Pact, Mercosur) with the EU, going against W. T. O. (World
Trade Organisation) regulations.
- The EU regulation (White pape r) will not help
European/Peruvian/Colombia/Bolivia fight aga inst the drug
traffic , since many orga nisations in Latin Ame rica depend on their
sales to the European ma rket, and if their prices are not
competitive, they will have to close and in this way people will be
unemployed. GSP grante d from EU to our countries will have no
sense to exist and will motivate more “drug dea lers” worldwide,
where Europe is a target ma rket.
Our ge neral thought is that REACH-project must be stopped, as it will not
only pre judice our EU c ustomers as we ll as the Europea n soc iety .
