Limit is fixed for 31st December for phase-in substances
The European Commission published in October an implementing regulation regarding REACH phase-in substances. This regulation specifies that some dispositions of the transitional regime for chemical substances called “phase-in” will continue to apply until the end of this year, on 31st December 2019.
Until then, pre-registrations will therefore remain valid as will the method for calculating tonnage bands (average on the three preceding years).
Consequences on the registration process
Consequently, starting in 2020, pre-registrations will not be valid anymore. Companies wishing to register substances will now systematically need to go through an inquiry even if they did proceed to a pre-registration before. The method for calculating tonnage bands will now need to be based on the calendar year.
Additionally, this implementing regulation clarifies the future requirements in terms of data-sharing practices and in case of disputes.
If you have pending pre-registrations you should consider using them before it is too late and proceed to the registrations before they are no longer valid. The inquiry is an additional step as well as additional costs and thus requires more data than a pre-registration.
