Neither non-GB company nor his potential GB-based
importer holds an EU REACH registration, what does that mean for non-GB company?
Under UK REACH any
GB-based legal entity intending to manufacture or import a substance into GB at or
above 1 tonne per year is required to submit a registration to HSE for that substance.
In case that the GB-based importer has no intention to register the substance, non-GB
company could appoint a GB-based OR to take on the registration responsibilities of
Where non-GB company has determined that a new registration
is required, and the provisions for grandfathering (EU REACH registration held by a GB-based entity)
and DUIN do not apply to him, a complete registration will be required prior to the import into GB
reaching 1 tonne per year. In such circumstances, no transitional provisions will apply.
