Still no certainty on BREXIT

  • Font size: Larger Smaller
  • Print

As with many other industries, chemicals are not really any closer to knowing the answers before March 29th.

UK government have published a draft of a Statutory Instrument to replace REACH (see here) but it is only a draft and it is still not clear when we will need it.  This could be on March 29th (in the event of no-deal BREXIT) or after a transition period if we agree a deal.

There is no sign yet of a public beta version for the UK's equivalent of REACH IT and time is running out for this to be ready in time for the end of March.

The EU also have yet to finalise guidance; for example ECHA promised to clarify practical steps for UK manufacturers to transfer registrations to an EU-27 OR (FAQ 1466) in January 2019 but this has yet to be done.

A challenging time for any chemical companies, and while we cannot promise you answers, we can provide guidance on options to the best of our ability so please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
