  • Determine the UK-share of your European exports >1T/year.
  • Appoint a UK Only Representative if you are outside the UK.
  • Appoint a Third Party Representative if you are in the UK and are at all unsure how to proceed.
  • Begin the EU-UK REACH "grandfathering" process or submit a Downstream User Import Notification as soon as possible! If you are considering exporting to the UK, talk to us about new registrations!

What are the deadlines for UK REACH?

If you are a UK entity who has held an EU REACH registration within the 2-year period leading-up to Brexit, your registration can be legally-recognised in the UK system. This is known as “grandfathering”. You must submit details to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) by April 30th, 2021. We can do this for you, as your Third Party Representative.

If you are a UK entity who has been importing/distributing EU REACH registered chemicals within the 2-year period leading-up to Brexit, you can submit a Downstream User Import Notification (DUIN) to HSE by October 27th, 2021. We can do this for you, as your Third Party Representative.

If you are outside the UK, please contact us to find out how we can maintain your access to the UK market, as your UK Only Representative.

You then have 2, 4 or 6 years, depending on your substance and tonnage, to complete your full UK REACH registration.
