If the UK leaves the EU on 29 March without a deal, UK businesses that manufacture or import chemicals from the EU will have to register those chemicals to a new UK regulatory system, UK REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) using its associated UK REACH IT system.
DEFRA have previously communicated with us about the development and testing of the UK REACH IT system as part the Government’s no deal preparations. DEFRA are now planning to undertake end-to-end testing of this system and its support services for Industry Users (from account creation to completion) to ensure the system facilitates and supports ease of use. There will be a focus on critical functionality. We would like to invite BASA members to participate in our Model Office to undertake this testing and provide feedback.
BASA members should log on the the member area of the website for full details.
