Companies that did not pre-register phase-in substances in manufactured or imported quantities over 1000t per year because they did not manufacture or import them before 1 December 2008, had until 30 November 2009 to complete a so-called late pre-registration. This means that they can still use the extended registration deadline of 1 December 2010 for phase-in substances that are manufactured or imported for the first time in the EU after 1 December 2008, provided the late pre-registration was achieved before 30 November 2009 (and within 6 months of first manufacture or import). After that date, the extended registration deadline is not applicable anymore, and companies hereafter will be obliged to complete a full registration before manufacturing or importing the substance (please see Art 28.6 of REACHi).
CEMBUREAU has encouraged its members to contact the persons responsible for REACH implementation in order to ensure that all pre-registrations to cover manufacture or import of phase-in substances up to 1 December 2010 was done before 30 November 2009.
