Specialist Printing - Substances requiring authorisation and candidate substances for authorisation

cover-2011-SP-ISSUE2-1Source: SPECIALIST PRINTING WORLDWIDE : ISSUE 2: 2011

Elaine Campling investigates further authorisations pertinent to REACH regulations

The first substances requiring authorisation for use according to the REACH Regulation have been confirmed with the publication of Commission Regulation (EU) No 143/2011, amending Annex XIV of REACH. The regulation formally adds six substances to the Authorisation list with ‘sunset’ dates between 2014 and 2015. This sunset date is the date after which a substance will not be permitted for use or allowed on the market without an Authorisation, unless a specific exemption applies. Applications for authorisation should be made 18 months prior to the sunset date and will be granted to successful applicants for a specified time period, subject to review.

When applying for authorisation, applicants must submit a chemical safety report identifying the risks from using the substance and an analysis of possible alternative substances. The analysis should identify whether the replacement substance will reduce the overall risk and the technical/economic feasibility for use. If a suitable alternative substance is feasible, the organisation must submit a substitution plan.
