On January 31st 2020, the United Kingdom confirmed its departure as a partner of the EU. Starting from that point, a transition period was opened that is expected to end next December 31st. From that moment on, the new British regulation will be applicable to this market and the chemical industry will have to adapt to the so-called UK REACH, a registration system for chemical substances essential for the supply chain within this region.
Cales de Llierca – Eurominerals has been monitoring this process since Brexit negotiations began, with the aim of preparing for this situation. Our goal is to continue supplying products while we ensure a smooth transition and our customers do not get affected by this new regulation. Supply related to EU countries will continue as usual thanks to the EU-REACH registration that we have had for years. Regarding supply related to the UK, we have appointed an only representative (OR) with the intention of registering our products under the new UK REACH. Our commitment is to be aligned with the new regulation as soon as possible so that our customers can keep working without restrictions.
