REACH Only Representative CAPLINQ

Have you completed your REACH preregistration?

Have you completed your REACH preregistration of your chemical substances before the June 1st, 2017 deadline?

The main pur­pose of REACH reg­is­tra­tions is to pro­tect both human health and the envi­ron­ment against poten­tial haz­ards. The leg­is­la­tion was first enact­ed in 2007. With the inten­tion to assess and man­age the risks asso­ci­at­ed with dif­fer­ent types and quan­ti­ties of import­ed chemicals.

All man­u­fac­tur­ers, sup­pli­ers, and importers of phase-in chem­i­cals in quan­ti­ties exceed­ing 1 ton per year have the pos­si­bil­i­ty to inform our con­sul­tants about which sub­stances they intend to register.

REACH reg­is­tra­tions require pre­sent­ing all the avail­able infor­ma­tion about a chem­i­cal sub­stance to a com­mit­tee of experts to inves­ti­gate its degree of risk. Com­pa­nies must sub­mit a tech­ni­cal dossier at the time of registration.

The dossier con­sists of chem­i­cal risk assess­ments, clas­si­fi­ca­tion pro­pos­als, eco­tox­i­co­log­i­cal and tox­i­co­log­i­cal data, iden­ti­fied risks and rec­om­men­da­tions. REACH Pre­reg­is­tra­tion is only for com­pa­nies plan­ning to reg­is­ter exist­ing non-car­cino­gen chem­i­cals and ben­e­fit from the extend­ed REACH deadlines.

There are two ele­ments that deter­mine whether a sub­stance is eli­gi­ble for pre­reg­is­tra­tion or not: — Lev­el of “risk” posed by a chem­i­cal sub­stance — Quan­ti­ty of chem­i­cal sub­stances It is high­ly rec­om­mend­ed to col­lab­o­rate with a REACH OR (Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive) to obtain the best solu­tions for your registration.

Fur­ther­more, for legal rea­sons, only EU-based com­pa­nies can reg­is­ter chem­i­cal sub­stances. For­eign sup­pli­ers have to get in touch with a Euro­pean “Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive” to make their com­pa­ny REACH-compliant.

There­fore, REACH Pre­reg­is­tra­tion involves ver­i­fy­ing if a chem­i­cal sub­stance is REACH exempt and clas­si­fied. This guar­an­tees your tem­po­rary access to the EU market.

CAPLINQ is a REACH Only Representative that can provide REACH registrations by listing chemicals on behalf of foreign chemicals suppliers.

You might be won­der­ing what is the dif­fer­ence between REACH reg­is­tra­tion and REACH Pre­reg­is­tra­tion. Pre-reg­is­tered sub­stances enter into a tran­si­tion­al peri­od and demand fur­ther reg­is­tra­tion to get full access to the Euro­pean market.

REACH Pre­reg­is­tra­tion involves send­ing a straight­for­ward noti­fi­ca­tion of your inten­tion to reg­is­ter a sub­stance in com­pli­ance with REACH dead­lines. So, you will get access to the EU mar­ket until 31st May 2018.

Our experts are con­stant­ly work­ing towards a solu­tion, mak­ing sure there won’t be any inter­rup­tions in your sup­ply or import operations.
