ECHA will soon verify the size of micro, small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) that have registered substances between 2016 and 2019 under REACH and benefitted from reduced fees. Check that you declared your enterprise’s size correctly and have uploaded the documents in REACH-IT.
SME registrant should check that the enterprise size claimed when registering or updating REACH registration is correct and that the required support documents in REACH-IT are correctly uploaded.
In case of enterprise size claimed turns out to be incorrect, ECHA should be informed by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 February 2020 information in REACH-IT should be updated.
By declaring and rectifying company size before ECHA begins the verification check, registrant will benefit from a full administrative charge waiver and only have to pay the difference to the applicable registration fee.
If later, during the verification process, ECHA identifies that company have claimed an incorrect size, there will will be a duty to pay the balance of the accurate fee and an administrative charge of up to EUR 19 900.
A stepwise approach on how to determine and declare the correct size of enterprise is available on ECHA’s website.
It is also important to regularly check REACH-IT accounts for any messages and tasks from ECHA, registrant should keep our contact details up to date and react to ECHA’s requests.
