After one and a half years have passed since the United Kingdom declared its intention to leave the European Union, there is still much uncertainty in the air about Brexit and its scenarios. It is completely open whether there will be Brexit with transition phase of 21 months (March 2019 - December 2020) or not, since a transition phase will only be accepted if a comprehensive withdrawal agreement is in place.
Michel Barnier, the Chief Negotiator of the EU, recently asked companies in the EU to accelerate their preparations for the Brexit, be it a structured or unstructured exit. He encouraged industry to ensure that its value chains between the EU and the UK are made Brexit-safe. The UK government, in its turn, has started to publish no-deal EU withdrawal guidance for the chemical industry. Read more here.

Who/what is concerned?

EU REACH registrations:

  • Solution for substances that were REACH registered by UK-based Only Representatives (OR) - transfer the OR role to SCC!
    No worries, OR transfers are “business as usual” for SCC and therefore can be done cost-effectively!
  • Solution for UK importer or manufacturer registrations – registration e.g. by SCC as OR or by an EU importer / downstream user supported by SCC.
    Rely on us, SCC has nearly one decade of experience in this field of REACH registration!
Substances marketed in the UK:

  • Solution for such substances that need to be registered according to new regulation (under preparation) in the UK for continued supply - UK registration via SCC in collaboration with its experienced UK-based partner consultant!
  • Judging from our experience,  project costs and agency fees should be in a similar range as for generation and submission of an EU Member dossier for REACH.
