h) Changes of legal entity

Does a change of corporate name of an applicant or an authorisation holder need to be notified to ECHA and how?


Please submit the notification as follows:

  • Log into REACH-IT and use the “change name” functionality to update the name. Please provide in REACH-IT an extract from commercial register as evidence of the change.

ECHA will verify the evidence of the change and inform you as soon as it has updated its databases. In case of a granted authorisation, ECHA will also forward your notification to the European Commission.
