Final Week for 2012 REACH Late pre-registration

21 May 2012, Late pre-registrations of substances has been at the top of the agenda for many companies in recent weeks. As the final week for late pre-registration approaches, CIRS remains on call to assist companies with meeting this important regulatory deadline.

EU REACH regulation has a broad scope and impacts chemical manufacturers and importers in the EU directly and non-EU manufacturers indirectly. Next week signifies a final opportunity for companies involved with substances in the 100-1000t/a bracket submit late pre-registrations and benefit from extended transitional deadline for their substances. Meanwhile, companies that fail to submit late pre-registrations will not be able to continue manufacturing or importing their substance until they have submitted a full registration dossier. According the ECHA, during the pre-registration period in 2008  ‘Half of the submissions arrived during the last three weeks’, thus it is not surprising that a similar peak in submissions will occur in the lead up to the deadline on 31st May this year.

Since 2007, CIRS has pre-registered over 10,000 substances on behalf of companies worldwide.
