What is the role of Elastron in REACH?

On ECHA's web page it says: "Companies that are not established in the EU have no obligations under REACH and cannot pre-register and register. However, a non-EU manufacturer of substances, preparations or articles whose products are imported into the EU can appoint an Only Representative. The Only Representative will then carry out the REACH obligations including pre-registration linked to the imported substances."

The company Pulver Kimya International GmbH has been appointed as "Only Representative" to provide information to customers and distributors about the EU REACH regulation issues by Elastron Kimya. The ‘Only Representative' notification has been shared with our EU customers. Pulver Kimya International GmbH will take place in supply chain and provide connection between our European customers and ECHA (European Chemicals Agency). Please click only-representative-letter.pdf for related letter (Only Representative Pulver Kimya International GmbH). Pre-registration of our substances to ECHA has been fulfilled.
