European Community number

The European Community number is a unique seven-digit identifier, assigned to substances for regulatory purposes within the European Union by the European Commission. The EC Inventory comprises EINECS, ELINCS and the NLP list; the EC number may be written in a general form as: NNN-NNN-R, where R is a check digit and N represents integers. The check digit is calculated using the ISBN method. According to this method, the check digit R is the following sum modulo 11: R = mod 1 1 If the remainder R is equal to 10, that combination of digits is not used for an EC number. To illustrate, the EC number of dexamethasone is 200-003-9. N1 is 2, N2 through N5 are 0, N6 is 3. 2 + 2 × 0 + 3 × 0 + 4 × 0 + 5 × 0 + 6 × 3 11 = 20 11 = 1 + 9 11 The remainder is 9, the check digit. There is a set of 181 ELINCS numbers for which the checksum by the above algorithm is 10 and the number has not been skipped but issued with a checksum of 1; the EC Inventory includes the substances in the following inventories. The content of these inventories is fixed and official.

European Chemicals Agency applies the EC number format to what it calls "List number". The number are assigned under the REACH Regulation without being recognised. Hence, they are not official because they have not been published in the Official Journal of the European Union. List numbers shall not be used for any official purposes.

Reuschberg (Spessart)

Reuschberg is a hill in the Spessart range, located in the Landkreis Aschaffenburg, part of the Franconia region of Bavaria, Germany. It has an elevation of 415 metres; the wooded hill is located in the unincorporated area of Schöllkrippener Forst. At its foot lies the town of Schöllkrippen. To the south is the valley of the Höllenbach, to the north that of the Kleiner Laudenbach, both of which flow into the Kahl. There is a transmission mast on the hill, operated by Vodafone, located on the slope at an elevation of around 385 metres. Near the peak, there is a sort of circular rampart, known as Alte Burg or Altenburg, with remains of both earth and masonry walls, long thought to date to the La Tène period. However, excavations in 2005 indicate that it most is a 10th-century refuge castle, with some elements added later. Over the centuries, locals have used the fortification as a source of construction materials, reducing the remains to just foundations; the Hof Reuschberg, a former monastery, lies on the lower slopes, just beneath the forest fringe
