UK REACH DUIN
18 October 2021
If you import products from outside Great Britain that are registered under the EU REACH regime you or your supplier(s) have either submitted or are planning to submit a Downstream User Import Notification (DUIN) to the HSE. The DUIN will allow you to continue to import the substance(s) you currently sell until the tonnage-based registration deadline applicable to the specific substance is reached. However, the DUIN process is only the start of the journey and awareness of your future requirements is vital.
This short, free of charge clinic is designed to explain the DUIN process and then the next steps so you can plan your journey accordingly.
This is the latest in our ongoing series of “Online Clinics” and “Best Practice Workshops”, part of our new initiative to increase the value of membership. Watch out for other such events going forward
The UK left the European Union as of 31st December 2020 and with it the entry into force of the UK REACH regulations. The notification phase of the regulations opened on the 1st January 2021 with a series of deadline dates depending on the type of registration organisations held.
The Grandfathering notification process was completed at the end of April 2021 whilst the Downstream User Import Notification (DUIN) process is due to close on 27th October 2021. The next step will potentially be data sharing, within the substance group and then ultimately registration. However, access to the substance group can only be gained via the “Comply with UK REACH” IT portal on gov.uk so understanding what to do and when to do it will be vital to prevent non-compliance in the future.
