In a Nutshell

► Who can apply?

Only manufacturers, importers or downstream users of an Annex XIV substance as well as duly mandated Only Representatives can apply for an Authorisation and be holders of a granted Authorisation. End users (e.g. OEMs), who are very often not in contact with the SVHC, but the most impacted from a business point of view, cannot apply for an Authorisation.

Authorisations will be granted if the applicant can demonstrate that the risk from the use of the substance is adequately controlled. If not, an Authorisation may still be granted when it is proven that the socio-economic benefits of using the substance outweigh the risks and there are no suitable alternative substances or technologies.
