In the unlikely event of no deal, the EU REACH Regulation will be brought into UK
law by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The Act replicates REACH in the
UK whilst making the changes necessary to make it work outside of the EU. We will
therefore retain the key principles of the EU REACH Regulation, including its
fundamental principle of ‘no data, no market’, and its provision for Only
Representatives (ORs). In this note, the EU REACH Regulation, as amended, is
referred to as the UK REACH Regulation, and the regulatory system it creates is
referred to as UK REACH.
