Following the European Council (EC) changing the UK withdrawal date to either 12 April or 22 May 2019, ECHA has advised that companies continue their preparations for the UK withdrawal without a transition period. Respectively, ECHA has announced that the ‘Brexit Window’ will stay open beyond the 30 March 2019, subject to further developments.
Which date applies will depend on a further vote of the House of Commons on the draft Withdrawal Agreement that the European Council endorsed on 25 November 2018.
According to stats released by ECHA, UK-based companies have initiated the transfer of approximately 3,000 registrations to EU-27 companies since the start of the year.
