Registration numbers have been granted to 32 515 dossiers out of the 33 363 dossiers that were submitted by the final REACH registration deadline on 31 May.

Keep your registration data up to date
ECHA reminds companies of their legal responsibilities to ensure the safe use of their chemicals, and to keep their registrations up to date to reflect, for example, the correct production volume, new uses, and the most recent safe use advice.

You can still submit a dossier by 31 May
If you have pre-registered substances that you manufacture or import from outside the EU above one tonne but not more than 100 tonnes per year and have not already registered them, the REACH registration deadline of 31 May 2018 concerns you.
If you are not able to submit a complete registration in time, you can still make a submission so that you can continue on the market until the Agency has assessed your case.
