Organising your Only Representative (OR) requirements (REACH Art. 8)

Are you a non EU Supplier or do you have non EU affiliates that want to supply their chemical products (substances, mixtures or articles) to EU Customers? Have you or do you want to allow these EU Customers to benefit from an Only Representative (OR) taking care of the Registration requirements under REACH for these non EU Supplied products?

Are you sure that you have taken care of all required actions to operate your Only Representative (OR) Services to the EU Customers? 

REACH Art. 8 allows a non EU Supplier to appoint an Only Representative (OR) in the EU that will take care of the Registration Requirements on behalf of the EU Customers for the non EU supplied products. Only when the OR has organized the relevant processes and communications with the EU Customers, these EU Customer will no longer be an Importer but regarded as Downstream User (without Registration requirements).

We have supported companies setting up and in the practical operation of their Only Representative (OR) Services towards EU Customers. We developed and have practical experiences with  the required (Registration) management processes and templates for the communications with the EU Customers. This includes amongst others an “OR Appointment letter” and “Declaration of REACH Conformity (DRC)” related to the relevant volumes covered per EU Customer.

Please leave your contact details if you want to discuss with us any issue with organizing your Only Representative (OR) Services under REACH.
