About this presentation

We will review the current state of play of UK REACH since Brexit, looking at the obligations of the different actors in the supply chain and the different transitional registration methods. We’ll look at how UK REACH has and will continue to diverge from EU REACH. Finally, we will look at some of the potential future issues regarding access to data as well as what DEFRA’s Alternative Transitional Registration Model may look like.
