An article from Poland on the dangers of missing the REACH pre-registration date.  It is in somewhat broken English, but still worth a read:

There is not much time left. December 1st is the deadline to initially register chemical products being traded in the EU in the Reach system. Polish Ministry of Economy warns that companies which have failed to do it so far may have problems with registration of substances they produce or import. Unless they manage to do it in time, they may need to close operations. There are thousands of latecomers. Many small companies did not know they needed to register. Out of at least several thousands companies from Poland which should register products, only 449 actually did it.
