KHUSH INGREDIENTS, REACH, BREXIT & ORGANICS UPDATE
Khush Ingredients would like to update our customers in the UK and Europe about the consequences of the upcoming exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union.
As this is a changing situation, we will update via our website when any significant changes occur.
Please note, all our EU customers will be supplied by Khush B.V. (our subsidiary company in the Netherlands).
IMPORTS FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD
Our intention is to supply our UK customers with materials from the rest of the world from our UK warehouse imported via Heathrow and Felixstowe.
Our intention is to supply our European customers with materials from the rest of the world from our Rotterdam warehouse imported via Schipol and Rotterdam port.
IMPORTS FROM THE EU
We are increasing our stocks of products produced within the EU in advance of the 29th March current leave date and will then evaluate any changes that may occur after the leave date passes.
REACH REGISTRATION – KHUSH REGISTRATIONS
The following products are registered by Khush Ingredients both in the UK and in Europe. We intend to register these as expected into UK REACH within the agreed timescale: ARVENSIS, CINNAMON LEAF, EUCALYPTUS CITRIODORA, LEMONGRASS, METHYL IONONE GAMMA, PATCHOULI. This will mean that all products will each have a 1-10 tonne limit from the UK and from The Netherlands
Any other REACH registrations completed will be notified on our news page.
All other products we offer are imported below 1 tonne and the pre-registrations will continue.
REACH REGISTRATION – EU PARTNERS
Currently our EU producers have registered BERGAMOT, CLARY SAGE, LAVENDER, LEMON, MANDARIN. ORANGE and ROSEMARY. We will assess and update the impact on ongoing UK supplies after the leave date passes.
REACH REGISTRATION – PARTNER ONLY REPRESENTATIVE REGISTRATIONS
Currently our rest of the world producers have EU based Only Representatives for ANTHRANILATES, CITRONELLA, EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS, PEPPERMINT PIPERITA, TEA TREE and WS3. After the leave date we intend to be able to supply all of materials above into the UK and will update our situation once resolved. We have increased our UK stocks of these materials in advance of the leave date.
Our rest of the world sourced organic oils are not affected before or after the leave date (as we are either UK registered or below 1 tonne). We are uncertain how the Certificates of Inspection system will work after the leave date but will work with the Soil Association and comply with any new requirements / systems.
Our EU sourced organic products principally: ORGANIC BERGAMOT, ORGANIC CHAMOMILES, ORGANIC FLORAL WATERS, ORGANIC HELICHRYSUM, ORGANIC JUNIPERBERRY, ORGANIC LAVENDER, ORGANIC OREGANO, ORGANIC ROSEMARY will be affected, and we will update our supply position after the leave date.
We fully intend to continue supply of all materials to all our customers and will respond quickly to whatever political / practical arrangements are in place after the leave date and will try and minimise any cost impact to our customers.
We are being asked questions from our customers every day. We will accumulate questions and answer via our website whenever new information becomes available.
