Changes to REACH Fees Announced

The fees payable to ECHA under REACH have been revised. Essentially, there will be further reductions for SMEs and increases for large (non-SME) companies.

This was discussed at a recent European meeting and the decision to decrease fees for SMEs is in response to the findings in the REACH review. It is estimated that the new fees will come into effect from the end of March.

SMEs should consider if they wish to delay their submissions and register after the new fees come into effect to benefit from the reductions.  

Larger companies should consider if they wish to bring forward their submissions that would be due this year and register now before the increased fees come into effect. 

Commission Implementing Regulation Article.

Further information on the new fees is in the draft regulation on the Commission website.
