How to comply with chemical regulations from 01 January 2021

How to comply with chemical regulations from 01 January 2021

UK REACH has been brought in to law. The online tool How to comply with UK REACH is now live.
UK REACH and the EU REACH regulations will operate independently from each other. Companies that are supplying and purchasing substances, mixtures or articles to and from the EU/EEA/Northern Ireland and Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) will need to take certain actions to be able to continue to access these markets.
Under the Northern Ireland Protocol, the EU REACH Regulation will continue to apply to Northern Ireland, while UK REACH will regulate the access of substances to the GB market.
The role you currently undertake within EU REACH may change under UK REACH, in some cases significantly. It is therefore important that you undertake a review of your role(s) within the EU and UK REACH regimes.
Under UK REACH, manufacturers and importers have a duty to register chemicals that access the UK market.
