Today Eurospace has issued to ECHA and the EC its position paper on Hydrazine usage in the space sector with regard to REACH.

The position paper was prepared by an ad hoc industry Task Force with the active support and endorsement of ESA, CNES and DLR.

Based on the assessments carried out, the European space industry is of the opinion that all propellant-related use of hydrazine for space applications is exempted from REACH authorisation subject to the criteria given in the Position Paper.

Please read the position paper here.
