Consultation on UK REACH submission deadlines

The UK authorities consider extending the current submission deadlines for transitional registration to UK REACH. Stakeholders are invited to voice their opinion.

The consultation is prompted by concerns from stakeholders concerning the time and cost of acquiring the data to complete their registrations within the transitional period for moving from EU REACH to the UK REACH regime. The transitional provisions apply to registrants, downstream users and distributors under EU REACH who wants to keep their business in the UK.

The UK REACH regime regulates the use of substances in Great Britain while EU REACH continues to apply in Northern Ireland.
