The UK officially left the European Union on January 31, 2020, after the Brexit Declaration in 2016.
Accordingly, the Transition period had been applied until December 30, 2020, and the UK REACH has been implemented from January 2021.

The UK REACH applies to Great Britain, which includes England, Wales, and Scotland. If you export substances to the UK for the first time,
you must proceed with the substance registration to export them.

Safety Assessment Solution Co., Ltd. provides advisory/agency services on the UK chemical registration regulatory trends.
