A company name change needs to be communicated to ECHA using available ECHA applications such as REACH-IT, R4BP 3 or ePIC. The company name can be easily changed by logging in to ECHA Accounts through any of the ECHA applications. See steps below:
- Log into ECHA Accounts
- Click on “Accounts, Users & parties”
- Click on the button “Edit” and “Change name”
- Modify the company name, agree to the disclaimer and upload a supporting document from a national registry to prove the official name change.
Important note: Under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), a company name change is considered legally valid only once an administrative change on request is authorised by your national authorities. Useful instructions on how to submit an administrative change on request (NA-ADC) via R4BP 3 can be found in the chapter “National authorisation – changes on request” of the Biocides Submission Manual: national authorisations.
