Business rules check, latest application date and invoice
The business rules check aims to ensure that your application fulfils a set of administrative pre-requisites. Your application needs to pass this step before ECHA can handle the application properly and carry out the required regulatory processes. Note that passing the business rules check provides confirmation only that your dossier can be accepted for processing, not that it is complete.
After ECHA has done these checks, it will calculate the authorisation application fee for you and send the invoice. If you wish to benefit from the transitional arrangements of Article 58(1)(c)(ii) of REACH, you should submit your application to ECHA well in advance of the latest application date so that you still have time to re-submit before the latest application date if your application fails the business rules (see Q&As 571 and 572 for more details). The fee has to be paid by the date mentioned in the invoice.
