REACH – 8 substances to be authorized

(EU Regulation n. 348, 17th April 2013)

It is published the REACH amendment of Annex XIV (“List of substances subject to authorization”). Eight new substances are now subject to authorization in order to be used after the “Sunset date”. For these substances there is no possibility of exemption for some use.

For any use and any quantities (i.e. also for laboratory use), these substances must be authorized. A small number of authorizations that have been issued so far, and this process has a long “path”. The dossier preparation requires a multi-year planning. You must then make sure that the appropriate strategies are evaluated in the company, in order to compensate an eventual “banning” of such substances.
