ECHA is encouraging companies to get going NOW for the May 31, 2013 REACH registration deadline for >100 metric ton volume chemicals.  See the press release here.  You might want to check out some of the videos from the REACH workshop held September 23.   Preparation for registration is a long effort to collect and assess data, especially when there is negotiation between parties doing joint registration.

If you need to register as a manufacturer or importer, find (or form) your SIEF (Substance Information Exchange Forum).

If you are a downstream user, get your use information up to your suppliers so they can make sure to cover your uses in their dossier and exposure assessments.  Make sure you know that your purchased chemicals are already registered or will be by your suppliers and that you receive extended safety data sheets from them.
