Intertek offers its customers complete support with the REACH pre-registration process.

Compliance with REACH is mandatory for continued sales of chemicals and products in the European Union. Up to 30,000 existing chemicals will be capable of being pre-registered. Pre-registration for these existing or “phase-in” substances allows a relaxed timeline for completing compliance requirements without a major interruption in European sales.

“In line with REACH Article 28, a pre-registration is required for phase-in substances so that manufacturers and importers can benefit from the transitional regime and continue with their manufacture or import while they are preparing their registration.”
