Your registration obligations

There are three factors that determine whether or not you need to register your substance.

You should look at each of these three factors for every substance you deal with:

  • Your role in the supply chain: do you need to register your substance or is it an obligation for another actor in your supply chain?
  • Scope and exemptions: does your substance need to be registered or is it exempt from registration?
  • Volume: do you reach the one tonne a year threshold?

If even one of these factors does not apply, you do not need to register that substance under REACH.
