The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) reported this week that they are working on transferring 3,000 REACH registrations to the EU27. These transfers are a necessary step for UK companies to maintain access to the EU’s internal market. According to UK’s Chemical Industries Association, transfers will still continue, as the number of substances registered by UK companies is higher than originally assessed.
ECHA announced that the transfer window will now stay open after 30 March, and will be “subject to further developments”. ECHA’s advice to chemical companies remains the same and will be adapted accordingly in the event of new developments.
