Testing is one of the REACH provisions that provokes the most debate.
In its present form, REACH exempts most intermediates and polymers from most testing requirements, but will require simplified registration for some.
The REACH proposal provides that nonproprietary hazard and risk information from registration documentation will be published in a database maintained by the newly established EU chemicals agency.
The chemical industry is concerned about duplicative and incompatible testing, but the REACH proposal states that OECD standards will be applied.
Just as TrueWave REACH has become the fiber of choice for new long-haul networks, as long-haul networks converge with metro networks and long distance carriers merge with local exchange carriers, TrueWave REACH LWP fiber will naturally become the Medium Dispersion Fiber of choice for this new era.
TrueWave REACH LWP fiber provides optimum performance for today's optically amplified systems, with higher capacity over longer distances and reduced attenuation in the water peak.
Due to the innovative fiber design, TrueWave REACH fiber has the lowest dispersion slope, best dispersion compensation over the widest bandwidth, lowest water peak attenuation, highest Raman gain efficiency and lowest system polarization mode dispersion (PMD) in the industry.
