‘The government has worked closely with partners, industry and stakeholders to develop a new IT system to manage the UK’s chemicals industry…’
The UK’s independent chemicals regulatory framework came into effect on 1 January 2021. The Comply with UK REACH system can be used by businesses to fulfil their transitional provisions and create new registrations. The Government adds that the system enables the UK to make decisions on regulation of chemicals that are based on the best available scientific evidence, ensuring that chemicals remain safely used and managed.
The Comply with REACH IT service can be used to validate existing GB-held EU registrations, submit downstream user import notifications, submit new substance registrations and new product and process oriented research and development notifications.
Commenting; Environment Minister Rebecca Pow said ‘We have worked closely with industry and partners to develop the Comply with UK REACH IT system, which is fitting for our world-leading chemicals industry. Having our own independent chemicals regulatory framework will ensure that we make decisions that best reflect the UK’s needs while maintaining some of the highest chemicals standards in the world.’
