    Updated on Oct 23th, 2018, the joint registration dossiers of 341 priority existing chemicals (PECs) under K-REACH have been submitted to the authority. 340 of them have been approved and issued with registration number. The remaining one application is still under review.

    The whole list of 341 PECs is accessible here.

    The grace period for registering PECs (in total 510 PECs) ended on Jun 30th, 2018. The rest PECs that haven’t been registered before the deadline will be subject to a ban preventing all manufacturing and importing until the registration is completed.

    The revised K-REACH legislation will come into force on Jan 1st, 2019, which sets out a plan of registering existing substances over 1 ton per year in the next 12 years. Pre-registration before Jun 30th, 2019 is necessary to obtain the phase-in registration grace period. However, for the 510 PECs, they are not eligible to do pre-registration to get  a grace period for full registration. They should be registered without any delay.
