Evaluation of the Early Transition from EU REACH to UK REACH

RPA has recently completed work with Defra, UK government departments and agencies on an evaluation of the early transition from EU REACH to UK REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals).

The work involved a detailed review of the UK regulations and processes involved in UK REACH and the transition, a survey of companies likely to have been involved with the transition measures and subject to future UK REACH registration, as well as in-depth interviews with authorities, companies, industry associations and NGOs to gain their perspective and experience of the transition.

The project focussed on capturing early lessons on the delivery of the service and emerging potential impacts of the transition, as well as providing early insights into value for money.

The report on the project has been published by Defra.
