REACH ‘Grandfathering’ Deadline: 30 April 2021

At the end of the EU Exit implementation period UK-held EU REACH registrations (as defined in Article 127A) have been carried over or ‘grandfathered’ into UK REACH.

In an analogous way, existing UK-held registrations for On-site Isolated Intermediates, Transported Isolated Intermediates and PPORD exemptions are grandfathered into UK REACH (Articles 127L, 127M and 127K respectively).

By 30 April 2021: GB-based holders of existing registrations and PPORDs under EU REACH must submit information in accordance with the transitional provisions of UK REACH.

Holders of such registrations will need to provide some information about the registration dossier in IUCLID 6 format, through the Comply with UK REACH service on GOV.UK. Guidance on how to Grandfather an existing EU registration under Articles 127B, 127L or 127M of UK REACH (as appropriate) is available.
