Now, after more than two years have passed since the referendum of 23 June 2016 at which the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, there is still much uncertainty in the air about Brexit. The current political situation in the UK indicates, however, that a hard Brexit is likely to take place and the UK will leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement on 31 October 2019. This would immediately make the UK a third country, i.e. without a mitigating transition period.
Michel Barnier, the Chief Negotiator of the EU, encouraged industry to ensure that its value chains between the EU and the UK be made Brexit-safe. The UK government, in its turn, has published 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.
