The Ministry of Environment (MoE) of South Korea issued a notice on Jul 5th that the pre-registration system will re-open to applicants from Jul 8th to Jul 19th to allow the industry to update their pre-registration information. At the same time, companies can also submit new pre-registrations in this period.
According to the requirement of “The Act on Registration and Evaluation of Chemicals of Korea”, i.e. “K-REACH”, all existing chemical substances manufactured or imported at ≥ 1 t/a in Korea shall submit pre-registration before Jun 30th, 2019 to obtain the grace period for standard registration. And because many companies are rushing to submit pre-registration right before the deadline, there are quite a few error information submitted in the pre-registration system. That’s the reason why Korea MoE made this decision to re-open the system for another two weeks. However, the company which missed the pre-registration deadline can take this opportunity to submit its chemical information. The registration procedure is just like the original one.
