ECHA Explains How Companies Can Apply for Chemical Substance Authorization Under REACH

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) held a seminar on April 12, 2011 to guide companies in how to apply for REACH authorization of chemicals placed on Annex XIV.  Now they have made the seminar presentations available online for all to download.  The seminar "was primarily targeted to potential applicants for an authorisation, and in particular for the first substances included in the Authorisation List, as well as the substances in ECHA's second recommendation for the inclusion of substances in the Authorisation List."

According to ECHA, about 40 people participated in the seminar.

The seminar agenda can be viewed here.  Topics included the content requirements for the Authorization application, the tools and guidance available from ECHA, and then an open discussion period where ECHA representatives and presenters answered questions.

The seminar presentations can be downloaded here.
