The REACH etc. (EU Exit) Regulations 2019

29 October 2019

Comes into force: BREXIT day
Jurisdiction: UK

These Amendment Regulations make minor amendments to The REACH etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, which in turn amend Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). In order to ensure that these EU regulations continue to operate effectively in the UK after ‘exit day’, multiple amendments are made to references, terminology, etc., and to provide for regulation and enforcement by UK rather than EU Regulations.     

Substances of very high concern: sunset dates and latest application dates
Substances of very high concern cannot be used or placed on the market after the ‘sunset date’, unless an application for authorisation has been made before the ‘latest application date’.
