Module 80
UK REACH & GB CLP Practicalities: Linking UK and EU Processes


The UK and EU are maintaining virtually parallel systems in terms of terminology and technical standards, although there are issues with regard to responsibility in the supply chain, especially if supplying the UK and EU through hubs in the UK or EU. 

The two half-day sessions cover both the issues that have arisen as a result of the UK exit from the EU and the new relations between EU and UK Regulations (and of course, not forgetting Northern Ireland).

A number of Regulations relating to chemical supply are impacted by the UK exit from the EU and although the principles and content of the Regulations remain the same in both regulatory frameworks, there are many organisers who are considered as importers and exporters and have respective responsibilities.

As well as REACH Registration and formatting of SDS and Labelling, other Regulations impacted include CLP, Biocides, Cosmetics, Plant Protection, etc.

The first step for all those involved in production and supply of chemical products is to establish their position in the supply chain to determine their own responsibilities. There is still some confusion in the market as to the respective roles, supply line mapping is crucial.

Once supply lines and responsibilities are understood, it will be necessary to look at the detail for REACH Registration and labelling (address of suppliers?) and so on. Ultimately, there may be a need for new UK Registrations to be considered.

The objective of these sessions is to ensure that the UK importer / supplier understands their position in the supply line and acts accordingly to comply with UK Regulations and to help their EU customers comply with EU Regulations when exporting. We will also cover key areas of divergence.
