New knoell Subsidiaries: Korea & Japan

9 March, 2016

Seoul, Korea

The recently implemented new Act on the Registration and Evaluation of Chemicals (“K-REACh”), includes the option for non-Korean companies to appoint an “Only Representative (OR)” to take care of the regulatory duties (e.g. dossier preparation and submission, classification and labeling) for chemicals which are going to be imported into the South-Korean market. Knoell Korea Ltd. is well prepared to take over the OR role for our European, US, Japanese and other global clients who are aiming for regulatory compliance in the South-Korean market. Our services include support for global agrochemical clients with the preparation of Import Tolerances Dossiers for the Korean authorities as well as support for Korean companies with the global registration of their chemical, agrochemical, veterinary pharmaceutical and medical device products.

Japan´s very strong chemical, agrochemical and pharmaceutical industry needs regulatory and scientific support to stay competitive in the European market with its complex regulatory requirements. For chemicals, the European REACh regulation differs considerably from the respective Japanese laws and needs special attention. Japanese agrochemical companies are facing a similar challenge for their active ingredients and products, namely the very high regulatory barrier. With the support of knoell's worldwide locations, the Japanese subsidiary offers support to enter the EU market but also to register agrochemicals, industrial chemicals, pharmaceuticals and medical devices on a global scale. At the same time, Knoell Japan K.K. can assist European, US and other companies to get their necessary registrations in Japan, e.g. according to the chemical substance control law (CSCL). Thus, Knoell Japan K.K. is an efficient interface between our Japanese clients and knoell subsidiaries worldwide.
