Brexit: REACH Substance Registration transfer from UK manufacturer/importer to EU Only Representative

The “leave date” of the UK has been pushed out until 12 April 2019. If you are a man­u­fac­tur­er or for­mu­la­tor in the UK, you are advised to trans­fer your sub­stance reg­is­tra­tions to a Euro­pean Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive if you still want to be able to use these Euro­pean reg­is­tra­tions after 12 April, 2019.

ECHA has announced that the pos­si­bil­i­ty for the trans­fer stays open until 12 April 2019. Nev­er­the­less, they advise prepar­ing all the trans­fers as soon as pos­si­ble. ECHA has report­ed that 3000 reg­is­tra­tions have been moved from the UK to an EU-based legal enti­ty so far. We are sure there will be many more before the April 12th deadline.

CAPLINQ Europe BV, locat­ed just out­side Ams­ter­dam in the Nether­lands, is an EU Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive for a large group of Non-EU manufacturers/formulators. As well, we are a full mem­ber of ORO (Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tives Organ­i­sa­tion) mean­ing that we not only have the lat­est infor­ma­tion on both REACH and Brex­it’s effect on UK man­u­fac­tur­ers, but also that we are part of the most pow­er­ful Euro­pean lob­by organ­i­sa­tion for influ­enc­ing ECHA decisions.

We can assist you in trans­fer­ring your reg­is­tra­tions in just a few days. The costs for this work are made up of a one-time admin­is­tra­tive fee invoiced by ECHA, a one-time set­up fee charged by CAPLINQ and a year­ly REACH Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tion fee.

Here are two exam­ples based on a sin­gle and 4‑substance reg­is­tra­tion trans­fer:
1 sub­stance trans­fer
- One-time set­up fee: EUR 499/substance
- Year­ly Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tion fee: EUR 975

4 sub­stance trans­fer
- One-time set­up fee: EUR 249/substance
- Year­ly Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tion fee: EUR 3.635
