LONDON (ICIS)–Companies must review chemical
registrations that have been transferred from
Great Britain in the wake of Brexit, the
European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) announced on
Safety information for more than 8,000
chemicals that have been transferred to the EU,
eurozone or Northern Ireland under the EU’s
Reach regulatory system may need to be reviewed
and updated following the transfer.
Administrative information on the company’s
role in the supply chain may also need to be
revised by the new registrant.
If changes are required, registrants have up to
three months to update administrative
information, or up to six, nine or twelve
months for more complex updates, according to
the European Commission’s Implementing
Regulation on dossier updates.
Updates are necessary for products registered
under Reach and previously notified substances
(NONS) under the Dangerous Substances
All information in a registration dossier is
checked for completeness – whether newly
submitted or included in a previous
registration – as the ECHA has been checking
the completeness of chemical safety reports
As the transfer of all registrations has now
been completed, 2,964 UK-registrations were not
transferred. They are therefore legally void
and now indicated as ‘revoked’ in ECHA’s
database and on ECHA’s website.
