To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 19 December 2018 to Question 201663, what further detail has been provided by the ECHA on the intended mechanism by which UK companies can transfer their registrations to EU based entities in order to maintain uninterrupted EU market access.
Answer (Dr Thérèse Coffey)
On 1 February the ECHA announced that it would publish a communications package in the week beginning 4 February to help all companies placing chemical substances on the EU market to prepare for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. It said that the package will include new question and answer material and step-by-step instructions for using the ‘Brexit window’ for UK-based companies to transfer their REACH registrations.
