Draft Implementing Regulation | Simplified REACH authorisation for spare parts
Title of document
Draft Commission Implementing Regulation laying down rules for the application of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 as regards applications for authorisation and review reports for the uses of substances in the production of legacy spare parts and in the repair of articles and complex products no longer produced and amending Regulation (EC) No 340/2008 (13 page(s), in English)
This draft Commission Implementing Regulation simplifies the applications for authorisation (under Title VII of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 - REACH) for uses of a substance in:
- the production of spare parts for the repair of articles or complex products, the production of which ceased or will have ceased before the sunset date specified in Annex XIV to REACH for that substance, where that substance was used in the production of those articles or complex products and these cannot function as intended without that spare part and the spare part cannot be produced without that substance (‘production of legacy spare parts’);
- the repair of articles or complex products the production of which ceased or will have ceased before the sunset date specified in Annex XIV for that substance, where that substance, on its own or in a mixture was used in the production of those articles or complex products and they cannot be repaired otherwise than by using that substance (‘repair of no-longer-produced articles or complex products’).
Furthermore, the draft Implementing Regulation proposes to reduce the fees and charges payable to the European Chemicals Agency for applications for authorisation and review reports for the uses covered by this draft regulation.
Notifying member: European Union
In order to avoid the premature obsolescence of certain articles or complex products that are no longer produced after the sunset dates referred to in Annex XIV to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, spare parts as well as substances and mixtures that are necessary for the repair of such articles or complex products need to continue being available on the market. The objective of this draft implementing regulation is to clarify and simplify the content of applications for authorisation and of review reports for uses of substances needed for the production of spare parts for those articles or complex products and for the use of those substances in the repair of such articles or complex products.
