ECHA advises businesses on impact of Brexit on REACH obligations

ECHA has launched a new section on its website dedicated to providing information on the impact of Brexit. From 30 March 2019 onwards, when the UK formally withdraws from the EU, UK based businesses will no longer be subject to REACH legislation and will instead be subject to UK legislation and EU businesses will be subject to UK rules on the import and use of substances.

The website provides a comprehensive Q&A for companies on a range of REACH, CLP, BPR and PIC related issues and will be updated as developments unfold. Companies should ensure that they meet the provisions of REACH until 30 March 2019 and monitor developments in UK legislation to meet their obligations post-Brexit.
