    The K-REACH Task Force published on 31 Jan 2017 a list of lead registrants (LRs) for 285 priority existing chemical substances (PECs). The LR election results were published with the name of LR in Korean, chemical name in English, CAS No. and the date of LR determination. The whole list is accessible here.

    South Korea issued the first batch of 510 PECs in July 2015. The PECs are subject to joint registration under the Act on the Registration and Evaluation of Chemicals (K-REACH) before 1 July 2018 if they are manufactured or imported in quantities greater than 1 ton per year. So far there are still 225 PECs requiring LR election.

    Some LRs are registering more than one substance and some names of LRs are confidential. If you are a potential registrant and interested to know which company is the LR for your chemical, please contact us directly at contact@chemlinked.com

    The previous rounds of LR election are reported by ChemLinked as below.
