    On Jun 28th, 2018, South Korea’s chemical authority announced the list of the Priority Existing Chemicals (PECs) for which the joint registration dossiers have been submitted under K-REACH.

    According to the announcement, up to Jun 27th, 2018, the joint registration dossiers of 313 PECs have been submitted to the authority, of which 173 have been approved and issued with registration numbers. Compared to a month ago (please see ChemLinked report here), the number of approved dossiers has already doubled and is still increasing. It is clear that the authorities are accelerating the process. The remaining applications are still under review.

    The deadline for registering the 510 PECs will remain as Jun 30th, 2018, although the amended K-REACH will introduce a new registration mechanism from 1st of Jan 2019. Companies are encouraged to meet the June registration deadline.
