UK REACH entered into force in Great Britain on 1 January 2021, as the GB regulatory framework for chemicals.
UK REACH includes extensive transitional provisions to allow chemicals that were already on the market and registered under EU REACH before 1 January 2021, the end of the Brexit transition period. The first deadline of these transitional provisions is 30 April 2021, which is soon approaching. This deadline only applies to companies who held registrations under EU REACH and have to grandfather them under UK REACH. For more details on the information that must be submitted for the grandfathering process, please visit this section of the CTPA Brexit public advice. Further detailed guidance is available on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website.
