K-REACH: Lessons learned from pre-registration and what's next

26th of September 2019
Placing chemicals substances on the South Korean market?

All existing substances manufactured/imported in South Korea in quantities of at least 1 tonne per year were required to be pre-registered by the 30th of June 2019 to the South-Korean competent authority. Companies that have pre-registered their substances can benefit from the registration grace periods foreseen for existing substances depending on the tonnage band.  However, what can companies do if they missed the K-REACH pre-registration deadline? Would this mean that they are required to K-REACH register their substances prior to manufacture or import? Or would it be possible for them to late pre-register their existing substances even though the deadline has already passed?

Join us on the 26th of September and get answers to the above questions and useful information on the implications of the K-REACH regulation on your business. In addition,  we will share with you lessons learned from the pre-registrations and provide useful hints on approaching the upcoming registration challenges more efficiently through an industry case example.
