Registration deadlines under REACH

BASF had successfully pre-registered all substances manufactured in Europe or imported into Europe and is since then working on the corresponding registrations.

In conformity with the transitional provisions of the REACH regulation ("phase-in"), the actual registration of relevant substances will be implemented until 31 May 2018.

The registration timelines and requirements for the registration dossiers depend on the manufactured and imported substance amounts and the substance properties. Submissions must be made by:

  • December 1, 2010: substances in quantities from 1000 metric t/a, substances from 100 metric t/a labeled as R50/53 and substances in quantities from 1 metric t/a with CMR 1 or 2 properties (R50/53 and CMR 1 and 2 are based on the definitions of the previous so-called Dangerous Substance Directive, which was still in force at that time).
  • June 1, 2013: other substances in quantities from 100 - < 1000 metric t/a;
  • June 1, 2018: other substances in quantities from 1 - < 100 metric t/a
