You can appoint a new Only Representative, located within the EU/EEA or in Northern Ireland. This requires that the old and the new Only Representatives collaborate in making a ‘legal entity change’ in REACH-IT. The new appointment must take place ahead of the end of the transition period and be notified to ECHA (through the ‘Legal entity change’ functionality in REACH-IT) without undue delay.
In Northern Ireland, REACH continues to apply after the transition period. This means, inter alia, that Only Representatives can continue to be based in Northern Ireland. Please refer to Q&A 1700 for further details.
