Authorisation is a procedure which aims to assure that the risks from Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) are either properly controlled by appropriate risk mitigation measures (RMM) or that these substances are progressively replaced by suitable alternatives. Who can apply for an authorisation: Manufacturers, importers, downstream users, and only representatives can apply and hold authorizations for their own uses and for uses down their supply chains. Manufacturing itself is not subject to authorisation.
