ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, has issued a press release in which it says it is seeking clarification regarding the status of approximately 700 substances which are due to be registered under REACH by 31 May this year. These substances have no lead registrant to take them through the REACH Registration process.
ECHA needs the information in order to ensure that any of these substances which are still traded and used are registered by the MAy 31 deadline so that they can continue to be traded and used. This is particularly important to both downstream users and their suppliers. The list of substances can be found here and contains a number of very commonly used chemicals.
