UK-company based in Northern Ireland

If your company is based in Northern Ireland, REACH, CLP, the BPR, PIC and POPs regulations continue to apply to you also after the end of the transition period. As a company located in Northern Ireland, you will therefore continue to have access to several of ECHA’s IT tools needed to fulfil your obligations. However, in certain situations concerning poison centre notifications and biocidal products, IT systems provided by the UK authorities need to be used. For more information, see the Q&As.

Transfers of chemicals from Great Britain to Northern Ireland are considered as imports into the EU, and the relevant obligations for importers under REACH, CLP, BPR, PIC and POPs apply.

This information is based on the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland which is part of the Withdrawal Agreement and applies as from 1 January 2021.
