On 26 April 2021 – ECHA announced that 8,000 UK-based registrations are successfully transferred to companies within the EU, EEA, or Northern Ireland following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. ECHA has advised these companies must review, update. The company’s role within the supply chain can also be got to be revised by the new registrant.

If an update is required, registrants have up to 3 months to update administrative information or up to 6, nine, or 12 months for more complex updates. These timelines are clarified within the Commission’s Implementing Regulation on dossier updates. the requirement to update applies to succeed in registrations and previously notified substances (NONS) under the damaging Substances Directive.

All information during a registration dossier is checked for completeness, whether it’s newly submitted or was already previously included within the registration. Subsequently from March 2021, ECHA also checks the completeness of the chemical safety reports. Information on the way to update a registration dossier is out there on ECHA’s website.

Now that the transfer of all registrations has been completed, 2,964 UK-registrations weren’t transferred, and are therefore legally void. These are now indicated as ‘revoked’ in ECHA’s database and on ECHA’s website.
