Confidentiality and using an alternative chemical name
Brexit: Transition period
The UK has now left the EU. Your health and safety responsibilities have not changed in the transition period.
Suppliers may request the use of an alternative name for a substance(s) in a mixture where commercial confidentiality is at risk.
Suppliers wanting to use an alternative chemical name must apply to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and pay a fee. The fee is on a sliding scale with small and micro businesses paying the least.
