Is your company size declared correctly?


If you are a micro, small or medium-sized company, you should check that the company size you claimed when registering your substances is correct. You should also ensure that you have uploaded the required supporting documents in REACH-IT.

Helsinki, 10 May 2021 – If you notice that you have claimed your enterprise size incorrectly, you should inform ECHA by emailing to: by 31 May 2021. 

By declaring and correcting your company size before ECHA begins verifying it, you will benefit from a full administrative charge waiver and only have to pay the difference to the applicable registration fee.

If ECHA learns only after the verification process has started that you have claimed an incorrect size, you will have to pay the balance of the accurate fee and an administrative charge of up to EUR 19 900. 

Help on how to determine and declare the correct size of your enterprise is available on ECHA’s website. 

It is important to regularly check your REACH-IT accounts for any messages and tasks from ECHA. Keep your registrations and your contact details up to date and react to ECHA’s requests.
