Welcome to the Only Representative Organisation
Only Representative Organisation (ORO) AISBL is dedicated to discuss openly and give guidance on all issues that are concerning the Art. 8, in the Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 (REACH).
Need to act:
There has been many misunderstandings and misinterpretation of the REACH Art. 8 in the past time. This can also be seen in the many corrections of the RIP 3.1 - all relating to Only Representative issues.
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 the tight timeframe of REACH into account and having no central access point that can give high quality information on Only Representatives issues raises strong concern among many non-EU Companies and their EU customers.
The Only Representative Organisation would like to provide this missing link in the future.
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.
