Any Great Britain (England, Scotland, and Wales) -based company that was sourcing its substances (as such or as part of mixtures) from the EU were considered downstream users or distributors under EU REACH. However, as of 1 January 2021, when UK REACH came into force, these companies have become importers under UK REACH. These companies can now benefit from transitional provisions of UK REACH by notifying their substances to the HSE. These so-called Downstream User Import Notifications – DUINs must be submitted to the HSE by 28 October 2021 in order for these importers to benefit from extended registration deadlines. These same requirements also apply to Only Representatives based in the UK, representing non-GB based manufacturers and formulators.
This online session will provide you with the necessary information on what needs to be done, who can do it and what information will need to be submitted to HSE within the first 300 days from the entry into force of UK REACH.
