REACH Registration Survey

REACH Registration Survey

Survey of SMEs on the REACH Registration Deadline 2018

Risk & Policy Analysts Ltd (RPA) has been contracted by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) to carry out a survey aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and concerning the registration of chemical substances under the REACH Regulation.

If your organisation will have to register chemicals manufactured or imported into the European Economic Area between one tonne and one hundred tonnes per year by the deadline of 31 May 2018, we would like to get your feedback on the registration process.  ECHA will use this feedback to improve the process and to further help SMEs in the run-up to the deadline.

The objective of the study is to collect data and information on SMEs experience of the REACH registration process.  To assist with this study we are inviting SMEs to complete a short online questionnaire found at the links below.  To facilitate the preparation of your response, a pdf version of the questionnaire is also available under ‘Supporting Documentation’ (bottom right of the screen).  The questionnaire is provided in the following languages:  Bulgarian (BG), Czech (CS), Danish (DA), German (DE), Greek (EL), English (EN), Spanish (ES), Estonian (ET), Finnish (FI), French (FR), Croatian (HR), Hungarian (HU), Italian (IT), Lithuanian (LT), Latvian (LV), Maltese (MT), Dutch (NL), Polish (PL), Portuguese (PT), Romanian (RO), Slovak (SK), Slovenian (SL), and Swedish (SV).

Please note that, according to European Commission Guidelines, SMEs are defined as “…enterprises which employ fewer than 250 persons and which have an annual turnover not exceeding 50 million euro, and/or an annual balance sheet total not exceeding 43 million  euro”.

The deadline for submitting your completed questionnaire is 2nd June 2017.

Responses to the questionnaire will be handled in the strictest confidence and will only be used for the purposes of this study.  Please note that responses to this questionnaire will be used in preparing our reports for ECHA (which, subsequently, may be published).  The data provided by all respondents will be aggregated and anonymised, and all information provided by individual companies will be kept confidential.
