2018 REACH deadline is approaching
Read below the implications for EU and non-EU importers and manufacturers.
On May 31, 2018, the registration of every substance manufactured or imported in European Union in quantities of more than one ton per year will have to be accomplished.
Are you affected by this deadline?
If you import from outside the EU above one ton per year, you may have registration obligations under REACH. Additionally, this impacts products which are blends, as it may contain substances that need to be registered individually.
How does it impact our business?
In compliance with Article 8 of the Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), Sharon has appointed an Only Representative (OR) under REACH – ‘Dr. Knoell Consult GmbH’.
Please be informed that our EU and non-EU customers could benefit from coverage by the REACH registrations done by the OR on Sharon’s behalf. They and any of their customers in EU are considered downstream users for these substances. However, please be aware that according to Article 37(2) of REACH it is under your responsibility to check if your specific uses are covered by the registrations and if in doubt contact your supplier to clarify any issues.
