Only representatives must declare their non-EU manufacturers

Only representatives must identify the non-EU manufacturers they represent and provide their contact information by 14 October 2022. If you need to reorganise your REACH-IT accounts, our new manual can help you.

Helsinki, 25 April 2022 - If you are an only representative of a non-EU manufacturer you will be asked to identify the non-EU manufacturer you represent, including their contact information in REACH-IT, from 26 April. You must have a separate REACH-IT account for each non-EU manufacturer you represent and have the necessary registrations for each of them.

The contact information you will need to provide includes their:

  • name, address, telephone number and email address;
  • contact person;
  • location of any production or formulation sites;
  • company website; and
  • national company identification numbers.

You may need to reorganise your REACH-IT accounts to ensure that there are separate accounts for each non-EU manufacturer you represent. Similarly, if you are an only representative but also a manufacturer/importer under REACH, you will need separate REACH-IT accounts for the only representative and for the manufacturer/importer roles.

If you need to rearrange your REACH-IT accounts due to these new requirements, the fee for transferring registrations in REACH-IT accounts can be waived until 14 October 2022.

Read our manual ‘Only representatives: How to ensure that your account represents only one non-EU manufacturer’ to find out how to reorganise your REACH-IT accounts and get the registration transfer fee waived.
