The manufacture, placing on the market or use for scientific research and development purposes or for the purpose of conducting chemical analyses of the mentioned substances or mixtures which contain them may take place if, prior to manufacturing, placing on the market or using them, the employer presents the following information to the appropriate State Sanitary Inspector of the district or the appropriate State Sanitary Inspector at the Ministry of the Interior and Administration:

- the manner of application;

- security and organisational measures provided for the protection of worker health.
In keeping with the International Convention respecting the prohibition of the Use of White (Yellow) Phosphorus in Manufacture of Matches, signed in Berne, 26 September 1906, it is prohibited to use white (yellow) phosphorus for the manufacture of matches, and to place on the market or use matches containing white (yellow) phosphorus in the Republic of Poland.


9. Brief Statement of Grounds
The draft Regulation implements certain provisions of Council Directive 98/24/EC on the protection of the health and safety of workers from the risks related to chemical agents at work because the manufacture and use without limit for research and development purposes of 4-nitrobiphenyl, 2-naphthylamine, benzidine, biphenyl-4-amine and their salts on their own or in mixtures poses an unjustified risk for human health or the environment.
Furthermore, the purpose of the draft Regulation is to introduce into the Polish legal order the provisions of the International Convention respecting the prohibition of the Use of White (Yellow) Phosphorus in Manufacture of Matches. This provision is implemented under Article 128(2) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH).
