Registration


The registration dossiers cover the use and assessment of the hazards and potential risks due to the substances themselves, sometimes including Chemical Safety Assessments and Chemical Safety Reports. Depending on the chemical and the number of co-registrants for the same substance, dossier preparation expenses range from €1,000 to almost €1 million (if lead registrant).

 

Last call to pre-register your low volume chemicals under REACH


If you manufacture or import a substance for the first time at or above 1 to 100 tonnes per year, and your substance is not a known carcinogen, mutagen or toxic to reproduction, 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.

 

31 May 2018
Deadline for registering substances manufactured or imported at 1-100 tonnes a year.
