Essentials of UK REACH and managing key transitional measures and registration requirements.
On 1 January 2021, the UK REACH Regulation came into force in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland; some compliance tasks can be handled by companies located in Northern Ireland). Therefore, any company importing, manufacturing, formulating and using chemicals in GB will need to comply with the requirements of the UK REACH Regulation.
UK-based companies that have registered their substances under EU REACH have the option to grandfather these substances into the UK system. At the same time, UK downstream users/importers that rely on the registrations of their EU REACH suppliers can submit Downstream User Import Notifications (DUINs) for known substances to the UK designated authority, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and benefit from extended registration deadlines.
This online masterclass will provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of applicable UK REACH requirements depending on the role of the company in the supply chain, and practical guidance on how to successfully manage key transitional measures: grandfathering, DUINs and authorisation timelines, and UK REACH registration for new and existing supply substances.
The course gives an overview of UK REACH and how it differs from its EU counterpart, and provides advice on:
- UK REACH registration and making an action plan to meet the respective deadlines;
- compliance alternatives for UK-based companies and non-UK exporters; and
- UK REACH obsolescence risk management and what suppliers and downstream users can do to mitigate these risks.
