EU downstream user of an authorised substance

REACH authorisations granted to UK suppliers will no longer exist after the transition period. If you rely on such an authorisation and want to continue using the substance, you can apply and become an authorisation holder of the substance yourself.

Remember that UK-based manufacturers and formulators can transfer their authorisation to an only representative based in one of the EU Member States or the EEA before the end of the transition period.

UK-based only representatives can transfer, before the end of the transition period, their authorisation or pending application for authorisation to a new only representative based in the EU/EEA, appointed by the non-EU manufacturer. Note, however, that UK-based importers cannot transfer their authorisation to an only representative in the EU/EEA.
