Authorisation

Substances of very high concern will be gradually identified in the 'Candidate list' and eventually included in Annex XIV of the REACH Regulation. Once included in that Annex, they cannot be placed on the market or used after a date to be set (the so-called "sunset date") unless the company is granted an authorisation.

Annex XIV sets the list of substances subject to authorisation obligations. Taking into account the first  recommendation of priority substances for inclusion in Annex XIV adopted by ECHA on 1st June 2009, the Commission adopted on 17 February 2011 a Commission Regulation including the first six substances of very high concern in the list of substances subject to authorisation.
