The UK’s REACH-IT system is ready to provide basic functionality

The UK’s IT system for chemicals registration provides “basic functionality”, according to the UK Chemical Industries Association (CIA), which helped test it. However, some aspects need further work, including a functionality that would allow registrants of the same substance to contact each other, and clarification on process for companies importing or manufacturing a substance for the first time in the UK.

Should the UK leave the EU’s chemicals safety regulation REACH under a no deal scenario, it will have to duplicate chemical registrations. Earlier this month, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Michael Gove reassured a House of Lords subcommittee that Defra has the personnel and contingency plans ready for a no-deal Brexit, and has taken account of the concerns expressed by the chemicals industry association.
