Last call to pre-register low volume chemicals with ECHA

To benefit from the extended deadline for registering existing, low volume chemicals by the last REACH registration deadline, you need to have pre-registered your substance with ECHA. If you manufacture or import a substance for the first time at 1 to 100 tonnes per year, and your substance is not a known carcinogen, mutagen or toxic to reproduction (CMR), you can still pre-register within six months of starting the activity, and at the latest by 31 May 2017 – one year before the deadline.

The third and last registration deadline for existing chemicals manufactured or imported in the EU/EEA from 1 to 100 tonnes a year is on 31st May 2018. If you want to benefit from this extended deadline for registering, you have to pre-register your substances with ECHA by 31st May 2017. Pre-registration enables you to continue supplying your low-volume chemicals legally on the EU/EEA market until the registration deadline. If you do not have a valid pre-registration or registration for your substance after 31 May 2017, you will need to register your substance before you can manufacture or import it.
