Call to Action for Downstream Users covered by upstream authorisation applications - Webinar

Given that large authorisation dossiers can take close to 2 years to develop, what can you do if your use has been covered by one of these upstream umbrella applications that has only received a 4 years review period from ECHA or the Commission?

Authorisations do not last forever. They are time limited (typically, they get 4, 7 and 12 years of review periods) and are also quite complex, especially the upstream authorisation applications covering hundreds of DUs and complex supply chains like the CTAC and MOCA applications.

Join Our Webinar

Where upstream applicants decide not to re-submit a review period, what should companies covered by the umbrella application do if they still require the SVHC substance for their use?

If they do nothing it means that, they will not be able to use the substance after the upstream review period ends, unless they have submitted an authorisation application on their own for these specific use(s).

We would like to invite all downstream users relying on upstream applications, and whose use(s) has received a 4 years review period to take part in our webinar. During this 45-minute webinar, we will guide you on how to prepare in good time your authorisation application and the strategies your company can take to keep your business working in the EU.

Topics to be discussed:

  • CTAC and MOCA upstream applications overview
  • 4 years of review period-implications for DUs and challenges
  • Strategies your company might consider
  • Useful hints to solve uncertainties in your dossier to get longer review periods and when to start
  • Conclusions¬†
