Socio-economic impacts of REACH authorisations - A meta-analysis of the state of play of applications for authorisation
REACH authorisation aims to ensure the good functioning of the internal market while
assuring that risks from substances of very high concern (SVHCs) are properly controlled
and that these substances are progressively replaced by suitable alternative substances
or technologies, where these are economically and technically viable.
To this end, all manufacturers, importers and downstream users applying for
authorisations need to analyse the availability of alternatives and consider their risks,
and the technical and economic feasibility of substitution.
