If your substance has been registered by the UK-based importer, its registration will no longer be valid after the UK withdrawal. This means that the imported substance will need to be registered by an EU-27/EEA-based legal entity:
- You can appoint an Only Representative located within the EU-27/EEA to carry out the required registration of the imported substance.
- The substance can also be registered directly by its EU-27/EEA-based importer(s).
You can appoint a new Only Representative, located within the EU-27/EEA. 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 UK withdrawal and be notified to ECHA (through the ‘Legal entity change’ functionality in REACH-IT) without undue delay.
