An amendment of the fee-regulation for REACH will be expected to be published in the Official Journal of the European Union, soon.
On basis of article 22 (2) of this regulation, a review has been carried out, taking into account the costs of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) as well as the costs of member states‘ authorities.
Whilst big companies will have to face higher fees for e.g. registration and updates, Small and Medium enterprises (SME) will benefit from the changes as there fees will be reduced drastically up to 47 % for Micro enterprises.
As the amendment should be valid for this year’s registration period, registrants can submit their dossier strategically based on their company size. Whilst “Large” companies should submit the dossier before publication of the amendment in order to benefit from the “old” fees, SMEs should wait until the reduced fees are in place.
