Successful conference gets people ready for REACH Pre-registration
May '08
At an event held on 13 May, attended by more than 130 people from a diverse range of industry sectors, REACHReady experts informed the audience of everything they needed to know about pre-registration for REACH.

The start of REACH Pre-registration on 1 June this year is a vital milestone in the REACH timeline.

Companies that want to benefit from a phased introduction to REACH Registration will need to pre-register any substance they manufacture or import within the European Union by this year's 30 November deadline.

Anyone that doesn't pre-register potentially faces an immediate cessation of supply by the end of the year - in other words pre-registration is a major business continuity issue.

“The actual pre-registration process is a relatively simple one – its been likened to shopping online”, said REACHReady's Technical Director Dr Jo Lloyd.

“The difficulty for businesses is knowing which of their substances to pre-register and that is definitely not as simple as it first appears” Lloyd added.

“Many people are unsure what exactly they should and shouldn't be pre-registering and what their obligations would be”.

“I can reassure businesses right now that pre-registration does not oblige anybody to go ahead to full registration. It is vitally important that you find out if you should pre-register substances - missing the deadline will have serious consequences if your supply of a substance ceases by the end of the year”.

It is also important that companies are aware of the late pre-register process, after the 30 November deadline, for substances that they have not previously manufactured or imported.

In London on 20 August REACHReady will be repeating this highly successful event and bringing it right up to date with all the latest information.
