The Korean chemicals and biocide legislation is highly dynamic and has changed dramatically in recent years, resulting in new requirements for potential importers and manufacturers. Did you know that a pre-registration system for phase-in substances has been implemented in the Korean chemicals legislation? The pre-registration period starts on 1st January 2019 and lasts until 30st June 2019. We have the experience and knowledge to take care of your regulatory needs for the registration of chemicals (K-REACH) and biocides (K-BPR) in Korea.
