Cefic/CIA briefing note – preparing for UK out of REACH scenario

Your substances


Brussels, 29th January 2019 -  Brexit will have significant implications in the area  of chemicals regulation, for companies both in the UK and in the EU27/EEA countries. 

Supply chains being highly connected, chemical companies may face difficulties in complying with chemicals legislation when the UK leaves the European Union. Cefic and CIA, the UK chemical industries association, have therefore developed a briefing note to support and prepare businesses, setting out practical considerations to maintain trade post-Brexit. The advice the document provides is based on the assumption that the UK would be leaving REACH as a result of Brexit. The two industry bodies look to minimise the challenges companies both in the EU and in the UK face to maintain REACH compliance.
