Only representatives must declare their non-EU manufacturers

20 May 2022

From 14 October 2022, companies will be expected to comply with new changes to REACH information requirements.

One of these changes is in relation to only representatives and the need for them to identify the non-EU manufacturers they represent and provide their contact information. Each non-EU manufacturer represented must have a separate REACH-IT account and have the necessary registrations for each of them.

The contact information needed includes:

  • name, address, telephone number and email address

  • contact person

  • location of any production or formulation sites

  • company website

  • national company identification numbers.

ECHA are waiving the fee for transferring registration in REACH-IT until 14 October 2022 to support this new requirement.

More information can be found on the ECHA website and in the guidance document, Only Representatives: How to Ensure that Your Account Represents Only One Non-EU Manufacturer.
