UK REACH - Brexit

You are here

Feeling left behind by Brexit’s changes to UK chemicals regulation?

The Brexit withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union sparked significant changes to chemicals policy and regulation, introducing many new and challenging compliance requirements including those under UK REACH. Brexit changes are complex and impact both companies within the UK and companies who export chemicals to the UK.

Act now to comply with new obligations including UK REACH

If Brexit has left you with questions regarding UK market requirements, our regulatory experts have the answers and solutions you need. 3E is helping companies understand and comply with these new obligations, including the time-critical need to make a Downstream User Import Notification (DUIN) under UK REACH due 27 October 2021.

Create Downstream User Import Notifications (DUIN)

GB companies purchasing chemicals from Europe must notify the UK Health and Safety Executive by 27 October 2021 to benefit from an extended period to confirm the imported products comply with UK REACH. 

Our 3E Downstream User Import Notification (DUIN) Service manages the notification for GB clients by compiling data packages for non-GB clients to use in supporting their customers in Great Britain. You can benefit from our in-depth knowledge of the requirements and leave the onerous data compilation effort to us. 

  • DUIN for companies in Great Britain 
    •  3E will compile the required information on substances imported and submit the information required on your behalf. 
  • DUIN for companies exporting to Great Britain  
    • 3E will compile the information needed to allow the British customers of these clients to make DUINs. Clients will then be able to supply their GB customers with this data package.
