Statistics on received applications for authorisation and review reports
The placing on the market and use of Substances of Very High Concern included in the Authorisation List requires an authorisation. Manufacturers, importers, only representatives or downstream users can apply for an authorisation. Applications for authorisation are submitted to ECHA. At the end of the authorisation process, which includes a consultation and the development of opinions by ECHA's Committees on Risk Assessment and Socio-economic Analysis, the European Commission decides on the granting or refusing of authorisations.
All authorisation decisions have a time-limited review period. In order to continue using the substance in question after the end of the review period the authorisation holders may submit a review report. The tables below provide statistics related to applications for authorisation and review reports per year and per substance.

1 An application/review report is received in terms of Article 64(1) of REACH when ECHA has received the application fee.
2 One opinion refers to a compiled version of the final opinions of RAC and SEAC for each use.
3 This refers to compiled final opinions of RAC and SEAC for each use and applicant/authorisation holder. For instance, if one application has been submitted by 3 applicants/authorisation holders for 1 substance and 2 uses there will be (3×1×2=) 6 RAC and SEAC opinions and subsequent Commission decisions. If another application/review report is submitted by 1 applicant/authorisation holder for 1 substance and 3 uses, there will be (1×1×3=) 3 RAC and SEAC opinions and Commission decisions. In total there would be 9 RAC and SEAC opinions and 9 Commission decisions.
