Sorry my mistake....this statement is true for Germany only.... because here REACH is only mandatory for companies and commercial business (even if you are a one person business). I have no clue how it is in other countries.

‘but only if you do it commercial (professional) (in German: gewerblich) because REACH counts not for private (= hobby) use.’

It’s much more complicated than that. If a license wasn’t applied for and granted before the ‘sunset‘ date you are not allowed to possess or use hexavelant chromium salts. I’m not sure you can even apply now. The form was extremely complicated to fill out and ideally would need the advice of an expert. 

I spoke to REACH prior to the ban. I was advised that if a business used small amounts, (under one tonne a year!), for research then no license ‘probably‘ wouldn’t be needed but but detailed notes are necessary to prove research is being carried out. I have this in writing. This is how I’m approaching the issue. 

Best wishes from the UK
