ECHA notes that the last chance to pre-register low volume (1-100 tonnes per annum) existing substances is 31 May 2017, and that failure to do so will mean that substance registration is needed before they can be manufactured or imported. Pre-registering allows chemicals to be legally supplied on the EU market until the 2018 REACH registration deadline (of 31 May 2018).
