GB-based downstream users of existing EU REACH authorisations
If you are a GB-based downstream user of an existing EU REACH authorisation held by a UK or an EU/EEA company (the European Commission granted an authorisation decision before the end of the transition period), you can continue to rely on those authorisations if you notified HSE of their use within 60 days of the end of the transition period (submitted an Article 127H notification).
If you think you should have notified your existing downstream user status, but haven't, please contact [email protected]
Submission of monitoring information
You may be required to submit specific data to HSE as a condition of the authorisation.
Guidance regarding any monitoring information that you are required to submit, including a reporting template and the deadline for submission will be communicated to you down your supply chain (from your supplier or distributor). If you need help with submitting monitoring information email [email protected]
Changing your supplier
If you have notified HSE (submitted an Article 127H notification) but want to change your supplier, you must:
use a supply chain where that use is already authorised in GB and notify HSE that you are a user of a UK authorisation (Article 66 notification)
get UK REACH authorisation for yourself.
You cannot switch to a supplier who does not have a GB authorisation.
