SME registrants: check your company size

2022-05-04

If your company is micro, small or medium-sized, check that the company size you have claimed when registering your substance is correct and inform ECHA if you realise that the size was declared incorrectly. This can help you save up to EUR 19 900. Remember to also upload the required documents supporting your claim in REACH-IT.

Helsinki, 4 May 2022 – If you notice you have reported your company size incorrectly, inform us at:

sme-verification(at)echa.europa.eu by 31 May 2022.

We are continually initiating new verifications on the size of companies who have declared they are an SME at the time of their REACH registration.

By declaring and correcting your company size before we begin verifying it, you will not have to pay the administrative charge, but only the difference to the correct registration fee.

If we learn only after the verification process has started that you have claimed your size incorrectly, you will have to pay the difference to the correct fee and an administrative charge of up to EUR 19 900.

Help to determine and declare your company size correctly is available on our website.

We recommend regularly checking your REACH-IT accounts for any new messages and tasks and keeping your registrations and contact details up to date.
