Authorised uses: non-confidential information from downstream user notifications now available

If a company’s use of a substance on the Authorisation List is covered by an authorisation granted to their supplier, the company must notify ECHA on the continued use of the substance after its sunset date.

ECHA has published a public register with data from the first notifications received in 2016. ECHA maintains the register and forwards the notifications to the relevant authorities in the EU Member States.

Read about the approach on how the information will be made public and watch ECHA’s video tutorial on how to submit and update a downstream user notification of authorised use.

Downstream user reports – January-June 2018 statistics available

The overview of the reports submitted during the first half of 2018 is now available on ECHA’s website.

Downstream users are required to report to ECHA if:

  • they prepare a chemical safety report (CSR) to assess a use not covered by the exposure scenario received from their supplier;
  • they rely on certain exemptions from the obligation to prepare a downstream user CSR; or
  • their classification is different from that of all of their suppliers.
