Be prepared for Brexit
On October 31, 2019 the United Kingdom may leave the European Union and in light of the current political situation, a “no-deal” scenario will be possible.
This so-called “hard” Brexit will affect UK chemical companies and their value chains as they will loose access to the EU market if their REACH registrations are not transferred to an EU27 based company. According to the European Commission “Only 52% of concerned REACH registrants had transferred their registrations to the EU27 by mid-August 2019”.
To be prepared for a no-deal Brexit, the European Commission has set up a checklist:
With our locations in Germany, Luxembourg and Spain, Chemservice can act as your EU27 Only Representative and therefore guarantee that you stay REACH compliant.
But leaving the European Union also means that the United Kingdom will certainly implement an own REACH-like chemical legislation. Chemical companies or importers who want to sell their products to the UK market then need to have new registrations under UK law in place.
With our entity Chemservice UK, we can assist you to be compliant with UK REACH and act as your Only Representative in the United Kingdom.
