The EU REACH regulation was brought into UK law on 1 January 2021, known as UK REACH.
In order to help minimising the impacts of introducing UK REACH and providing continuity for businesses, the UK Government has implemented transitional provisions for GB-based EU REACH registration holders. As UK REACH only applies in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales), legal entities based in the EU and EEA do not have obligations under the UK regime.
Relevant EU REACH registrations can continue under UK REACH using a process which is known as 'grandfathering'. For that reason, EurO3zon UK Ltd (Norwich, Norfolk, England) was founded, which is fully owned and managed by EurO3zon ivzw (Belgium). EurO3zon UK Ltd is continuing to take all necessary steps in order to stay compliant with UK REACH.
Depending on the tonnage band (and hazard profile if relevant) of the substance within 2, 4 or 6 years plus 300 days of the end of the Transition Period compliance with the full information requirements for the concerned tonnage band under UK REACH is needed.
GB downstream ozone manufacturers (who before the end of the transition period manufactured ozone in UK and relied on an EU REACH registration held further up the supply chain) will become ozone manufacturers under UK REACH. They must ensure that the ozone they manufacture is covered by a valid UK REACH registration.
