Welcome to the Only Representative Organisation
Only Representative Organisation (ORO) AISBL is dedicated to discuss and give guidance on all issues that are concerning the Art. 8, in the Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 (REACH).
The Only Representative Organisation (ORO) represents 60% of all Only Representatives service providers in Europe!
The majority of our members are also professional Service providers who consult European companies on Regulatory Affairs. This expertise among the ORO members on regulatory affairs generates a comprehensive background on REACH and Only Representative obligation.
Need to act:
Only REACH Art. 8 provides the framework of the important role of Only Representatives in the regulation.
Since this is the only Article of the 141 Articles in the REACH Regulation, it leaves plenty of room for many misunderstandings and misinterpretation on obligations of Only Representatives.
The role of an Only Representative is extremely important, because his actions for each substance of his client reflect on all stakeholders in the supply chain, SIEF, EU and national authorities.
Taking into account the complexety of the REACH regulation, with no central access point that can give high quality information on Only Representatives issues, is raising strong concern among many non-EU Companies and their EU customers.
The Only Representative Organisation provides this missing link.
ORO’s main objectives:
- Set up common Only Representatives guidance and quality standards
- Develop a common understanding of REACH requirements for Only Representatives
- Represent Only Representatives and non-EU manufacturers
- Cooperate with regulators and other stakeholder in the REACH process
Currently we are looking for more Only Representatives who are willing to play an active role in the Only Representative Organisation. If you and your organisation are interested, please use our ORO contact formular.
