Reminder - Companies affected by Brexit should act now

The transition period of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU ends on 31 December 2020, and the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland starts to apply from 1 January 2021. REACH registrations made by UK(GB)-based manufacturers, importers and only representatives will become void if they are not transferred to the EU/EEA before the transition period ends. A guide is available for support.

About half of the 1 181 substances that were originally only registered in the UK have not yet been transferred. Registrants and downstream users can consult the list available online.
