UK-based authorisation holder under REACH

After the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, EU legislation will no longer apply to the UK. This means that, for example, if your UK-based company holds or is covered by a REACH authorisation for certain uses of an Annex XIV substance, the conditions of the authorisation no longer apply to you.

Authorisations granted to UK-based companies will no longer exist, so EU-based companies relying on such authorisations will need to find suppliers with valid authorisations in the EU-27/EEA, or apply for new authorisations themselves.

A UK-based company can transfer its authorisation to an only representative in the EU. You can make the transfer after the UK’s withdrawal, but to be prepared, you can already make a formal agreement with the only representative that would become effective from the date of the UK’s withdrawal.
