Lubrizol UK REACH Update

Dear Sir or Madam,

The Brexit transition period ended on 31st December 2020 and as such Great Britain (GB) is no longer part of the European Union.

Substances, either manufactured or imported into GB, in quantities equal to or greater than 1 metric tonne per year, must in future be either registered or notified according to UK REACH, unless the substance is exempt.

Status of Lubrizol Products

Substances within Lubrizol products that are sourced from Lubrizol GB plants have been either registered or notified by Lubrizol Limited or by another company up in the GB supply chain in accordance with initial UK REACH transitional requirements. You can be assured therefore that products sourced from our GB plants are in conformity with UK REACH and continue to be available to you.

If your company receives a Lubrizol product directly from a Lubrizol plant based outside of GB and you have entered into an Only Representative (OR) agreement with Lubrizol, subject to the terms and conditions therein, all relevant substances are also in compliance with the UK REACH requirements.

If your company plans to export a Lubrizol product to GB, either such or as part of your own company's product, please contact to discuss the practicalities of Lubrizol providing assistance to support import of the Lubrizol product into GB.

Currently, we do not envisage disruption to supply of Lubrizol products as the result of the new requirements of UK REACH. If we decide not to support a Lubrizol product in the future, we are committed to inform customers at the earliest opportunity.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.
