REACH ‘Grandfathering’ Deadline: 30 April 2021

At the end of the EU Exit implementation period your UK-held EU REACH registration (as defined in Article 127A) has 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.
