In their more comprehensive review since the November 2010 submission deadline, ECHA has determined that some companies inappropriately claimed they were SMEs when they did not, in fact, qualify for that designation or the reduced fee. Those companies that cannot document their SME status or pay the full size entity fee are considered to have failed the completeness check. In those cases ECHA has chosen to revoke the registration, which means the companies can no longer legally manufacture or import the chemical substance in question.
More details on the revocation can be found on the ECHA website.
