UK REACH Alternative Registration Model

UK REACH Alternative Registration Model

24 June 2024


After months of discussions between industry, regulators and Trade Associations, the Secretary of State for the Environment announced in December 2021 that ‘Defra has committed to exploring alternative arrangement for UK REACH transitional registrations in order to support chemical businesses whilst upholding the highest standards to safeguard public health and the environment.’

Since then, the Chemical Business Association has been an integral part of the lobbying and advocacy effort to push this to a conclusion as part of the Oversight Group and the Technical Working Group, which has been fundamental in the timeline extensions and the alternative registration model. DEFRA have now published the proposed alternative registration model and launched a consultation, which is now open and will close on the 11th July 2024.  This consultation gives our members the opportunity to provide direct input into the decision-making process.  We would like to encourage all interested members to consider completing the consultation.

This short Online Clinic is designed to explain:

  • The proposed UK REACH alternative registration model
  • Explain the detail of the consultation
  • Discuss the Chemical Businesses Association’s preferred options
  • Discuss information requirements for consultation responses
