UK-based authorisation holder under REACH

An application for an authorisation submitted by a person established in the UK is no longer valid in the EU, unless that application has been transferred to a legal entity established in the EU or Northern Ireland before the end of the transition period. Therefore, authorisation applications and decisions that have been submitted from the UK are no longer considered valid.

If your UK-based company holds or is covered by a REACH authorisation for certain uses of an Annex XIV substance, the conditions of the authorisation therefore no longer apply to you.

As authorisations granted to UK-based companies no longer exist, EU-based companies relying on such authorisations need to find suppliers with valid authorisations in the EU/EEA, or apply for new authorisations themselves.
