Brexit Updates – EU Technical Notice on REACH

On 30 March, the EU Commission updated its technical notice on REACH to advise companies on how to prepare to ensure compliance with EU REACH at the end of the Brexit transition period (currently set for 31 December 2020).

The document reflects key actions that companies have to take if the future relationship between the UK and the EU will be solely based on the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement; the document also explains rules applicable to Northern Ireland. 

CTPA continues to work closely with the UK Government and sister associations in the chemical sector to push for cooperation between UK authorities and the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in respect to chemicals.  Companies are encouraged to use the CTPA position paper on UK REACH and chemicals negotiations and share it with EU counterparts to strengthen the message, and ensure that the key asks of the cosmetics industry are addressed.
