Companies concerned about disclosing their interest in a particular substance through participation in REACH Substance Information Exchange Fora (SIEF) or Consortia and meeting the complex requirements of REACH, can appoint a Third Party Representative to act on their behalf.

Intertek’s Third Party Representative Service is offered to companies pre-registering and registering substances under REACH requiring discretion when it comes to their interest in specific substances. Intertek is well-versed in managing confidential interests of their clients. Our global REACH services are supported by EU-based Intertek offices and local Intertek offices worldwide. With a wealth of experience spanning diverse industries and legislative consulting, Intertek is a sound choice as your Third Party Representative.

“Companies should be aware that contact details indicated at pre-registration will be made available to all potential registrants of the substance(s) pre-registered under the same identity code as well as to potential registrants of all other substances for which read-across possibilities have been indicated. Whenever they consider such information to be sensitive, a Third Party Representative may be used.” - Practical steps for REACH pre-registration, European Chemical Agency (ECHA)
