ECHA revises REACH admin fees

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has revised the administrative charge it makes for incorrect declarations of company size under the EU Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation, which covers agrochemical intermediates. Under REACH, small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are eligible for reduced application fees. The charge will now take account of the financial gain made if a large company registers as an SME. The revision is likely to lead to reduced charges in some cases, the ECHA says. It had to review its fees in response to an EU court ruling in 2014. It annulled a previous ECHA charge because it was not proportionate to the amount of fees that a large company avoided by registering as a SME.
