Korea: The Act on Registration and Evaluation, etc. of Chemical Substances (K-REACH)
Since the amendment of The Act on Registration and Evaluation, etc. of Chemical Substances (K-REACH) all non-exempt chemical substances including polymers and stabilizers with annual import or manufacturing volume above 1 ton per year require a prenotification, registration or application for exemption by July 1st, 2019.
All legal entities that import chemical products into South Korea (“importers of record”) are responsible to fulfill the obligations of K-REACH. These obligations can also be agreed to be fulfilled by an appointed Only Representative (OR). By making use of this service all your (pre-)registration obligations for the BASF product are handled by the OR and you can focus on business.
In case you would like to request BASF appointed OR service for products sourced from BASF, please fill in the request form following this link.
