SCC  – your OR in the EU

Companies based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) can appoint an EU-based Only Representative (OR) to take over the tasks and responsibilities of importers under REACH.

SCC is a member of the Only Representative Organisation (ORO) representing the majority of Only Representative service providers in Europe. Our experts have the experience and expertise to take over the OR role for non-EU chemical companies. We are physically established in the EEA and are skilled in the practical handling of substances and the information related to them under REACH. We have provided complex supply-chain and OR support to numerous overseas clients since the start of REACH.

Trustee function

REACH requires non-EU manufacturers and importers of the same substance to closely work together in order to determine the total imported substance volume (tonnage per registrant) and all industrial, professional, and consumer uses of the substance for the EU market. While trying to meet this requirement, companies often risk violating the EU competition law. SCC as independent party can act as a trustee, enabling companies to share legally required information in a legally compliant manner between the concerned stakeholders, all the way up and down the supply chain.

With our long-standing experience and established reputation as an independent partner (e.g. consortia leader), we are able to create the right balance of discretion and transparency. We always seek robust compliance, while handling delicate trustee mandates to all parties’ fullest satisfaction.
