According to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), over 4,800 of an estimated total of 12,000 UK registrations have been transferred to the EU27 or are in the process of being transferred. The transfers have been accelerating rapidly with last week seeing a record of 1,800 transfers.
Nevertheless, out of the 1,181 substances that hold a registration only in the UK, only 197 have so far been transferred to the EU27.If not transferred in time, i.e. before Brexit day, these substances are at risk of losing access to the internal market and to cause major supply chain disruptions
ECHA advises companies to proceed to the transfer through the IT tool before Brexit takes effect (currently 13 April 2019, 00:00).
