REACH oNLY REPRESENTATIVE IN EUROPE

Why USA Chemical companies need REACH only representative

The sup­ply chain for chem­i­cal sub­stances in the Euro­pean Union is com­plex. As sev­er­al orga­ni­za­tions are procur­ing raw mate­ri­als from EU and non-EU sup­pli­ers. And, sim­i­lar­ly, numer­ous non-EU sup­pli­ers are sell­ing their prod­ucts in the Euro­pean mar­ket. Con­se­quent­ly, any foundry that puts a chem­i­cal sub­stance into cir­cu­la­tion with­in the EU is required to reg­is­ter under REACH.

Hir­ing CAPLINQ as your REACH only rep­re­sen­ta­tive sim­pli­fies the reg­is­tra­tion process as the sub­se­quent respon­si­bil­i­ty to com­ply with the REACH oblig­a­tions. Also, haz­ard and risk com­mu­ni­ca­tion is del­e­gat­ed to us. We offer sev­er­al advan­tages for your busi­ness, read on these ben­e­fits to under­stand why you need our Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive ser­vices.

Simplifies REACH only representative registration process

If you are a USA chem­i­cal com­pa­ny sup­ply­ing prod­ucts in EU, all your EU cus­tomers will be con­sid­ered an importer. It must be not­ed that each and every sin­gle user of the sub­stance whether used in the prepa­ra­tion or oth­er­wise will be con­sid­ered an importer. Sub­se­quent­ly, every sin­gle cus­tomer will need to sub­mit a reg­is­tra­tion to the Euro­pean chem­i­cal agency to ensure legal access to the Euro­pean mar­ket.

Com­pli­ca­tions in the process of procur­ing mate­ri­als can dri­ve away your cus­tomers. On the oth­er hand, appoint­ing CAPLINQ as your Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive to car­ry out the legal­i­ties relieves your cus­tomers from the oblig­a­tion of reg­is­tra­tion. They are no longer regard­ed as importers and are con­sid­ered down­stream users.

Easier to Maintain the Market

Non-EU sup­pli­ers that do not hire a REACH Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive are at a dis­ad­van­tage when it comes to main­tain­ing and grow­ing their mar­ket. With­out an only rep­re­sen­ta­tive, if you wish to find new importers, all those addi­tion­al importers will be required to reg­is­ter with REACH. At the same time, if your importers them­selves reg­is­ter with REACH, they will have the option to import sub­stances from mul­ti­ple sources, which will result in loss of busi­ness for you.

Delegates Hazard and Risk Communication Responsibility

For your importers to com­ply with REACH oblig­a­tions, you will need to sup­ply each importer the con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion about the prop­er­ties and com­po­si­tion of the sub­stance. In case you have mul­ti­ple importers, ren­der­ing the required infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion with each one of them regard­ing all mat­ters in accor­dance to REACH can enhance your work­load and will be time-con­sum­ing as well. Appoint­ing CAPLINQ as your REACH Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive allows you to del­e­gate the haz­ard risk and com­mu­ni­ca­tion respon­si­bil­i­ty. Which offers you more time to con­cen­trate on core busi­ness activ­i­ties. Fur­ther­more, our ONLY Rep­re­sen­ta­tive ser­vices are neu­tral, and we also offer high pro­tec­tion know-how as well.

Releases your European Customers from regulatory duties

Hir­ing us as your REACH Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive releas­es your Euro­pean Union cus­tomers from reg­u­la­to­ry duties, which makes the pur­chase process smooth and con­ve­nient. This also helps pre­vents your importers meet­ing each oth­er or your com­peti­tors in SIEFs and dis­cussing prices and quan­ti­ties etc., with each oth­er.

Decreased Cost

The costs of reg­is­ter­ing with REACH for every sin­gle sub­stance import­ed might dis­cour­age your cus­tomers to pro­cure sub­stances from you. They might con­sid­er an intra-EU alter­na­tive or a com­pa­ny already using the ser­vices of REACH OR a more eco­nom­i­cal option. Which will mean a loss of busi­ness for you. Appoint­ing CAPLINQ as your REACH Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive will reduce the total cost of the sup­ply chain as only a sin­gle reg­is­tra­tion per sub­stance will be required. Plus, it will encour­age your cus­tomers since they will no longer be nec­es­sary to com­ply with REACH oblig­a­tions.

CAPLINQ is a trust­ed mem­ber of ORO, and our core com­pe­ten­cy is chem­i­cals and plas­tics, which means our REACH Only Rep­re­sen­ta­tive ser­vices can eas­i­ly deliv­er all the ben­e­fits above-men­tioned for your busi­ness.
