    BASA Advisory Note on UKREACH for EU suppliers into GB market

    Lorna Williams, BASA Executive Officer and General Secretary, has shared an advisory note for FEICA members on UKREACH and the implications for EU suppliers to GB customers. As with EU REACH most polymers are currently exempt from UKREACH registration obligations, but the monomers and chemical substances used to manufacture the polymers are required to be registered if imported into GB above 1T per annum (the same as EU REACH). BASA are producing templates, guides, and advice to BASA member companies and these are available on the Members-only area of the BASA Website. For more information on UKREACH or BASA membership, please visit the BASA website.
