As an only representative you have a responsibility to provide information to importers – your downstream users – so they can compile safety data sheets.
Communication up the supply chain
Your customers have the right and in some cases the obligation to communicate information back up the supply chain. They have the right to make a use known upstream to their supplier, with the aim that this use may eventually be covered by the registration. This communication may also be done through the sector organisations by way of a sector use map.
Your customers also have the obligation to communicate upstream any new information on hazardous properties, regardless of the uses concerned, and any other information that might call into question the appropriateness of the risk management measures identified in a safety data sheet supplied to them. For this reason, as an only representative, you should have mechanisms in place to facilitate this upstream communication.
