Intertek's suite of REACH services provides comprehensive solutions for your REACH compliance.

Non-EU (European Union) manufacturers are not permitted to submit REACH registration dossiers to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). However, Article 8 of REACH provides for a non-EU manufacturer to appoint an Only Representative in order to fulfill the registration obligations on their behalf.

Intertek has longstanding experience acting as an OR for many companies around the world. The service provides the necessary legal presence and representation in the EU including representation in the European Chemical Agency (ECHA), technical management of REACH pre-registration and registration, and submission of information to the EU to fulfill a company’s REACH obligations. Whether your company is entering the EU market for the first time or your business is considering a change of OR, we can offer a comprehensive service tailored to your unique requirements.
