REACH Only Representative
The import of chemical substances into the European Union is regulated by the REACH Regulation (EU Regulation No. 1907/2006).
This Regulation obliges European companies to register all substances they import into Europe in quantities of 1 tonne or more per year. These registrations entail high economic costs that not all companies can afford, which is why more and more companies are reducing their imports and increasing their purchases of chemicals within Europe.
Non-European manufacturers exporting chemicals to Europe may designate a European company to act as their Representative and register the substances. In this way, they gain a commercial advantage over their competitors by avoiding the need for their European customers to register their substances, thus saving them the financial outlay involved.
Reasonably, European companies are attracted to those suppliers who release them from their obligations under REACH and who in turn maintain the competitiveness that characterises suppliers from outside the EU.
In order to facilitate the entry into Europe of all non-EU manufacturers, we offer the Only Representation service to non-EU manufacturers, guaranteeing them compliance with the legislation in Europe.
