Scope of REACH
What are the duties of registrants that cease manufacture and import?
If a registration for a substance has been submitted, the obligations to update the registration (Article 22) and to keep information (Article 36) apply. This means that a registrant ceasing manufacture and import of this substance has to inform the Agency about the new total tonnage manufactured and imported (in this case zero t/a). Furthermore this registrant has to keep available all the information he required to carry out his duties under REACH for a period of at least 10 years after he last manufactured, imported, supplied or used the substance (as such or in a mixture). In this regard, the period of at least 10 years does not start if the registrant, who ceased manufacture and import, still supplies or uses the substance.
