TSG can help you to:
- Determine how and when these new entries to Annex XIV impact you and your supply chain
- Prepare a practical roadmap so you can navigate authorisation, meet your compliance obligations and effectively manage your business risks, including evaluating opportunities to avoid the need for authorisation through substitution
- Prepare and submit an application for authorisation if the path to successful substitution is not clear or timely, and/or use is required after the Sunset date
Preparing a robust application dossier takes many months and beginning work as early as possible is advisable to minimise business continuity risks. The Commission will grant an authorisation with a time-bound review period if an application is successful. There may be an option to extend the review period if required.
TSG helps organisations around the world manage their authorisation obligations and, when needed, submit applications under EU and UK REACH. Get in contact today at [email protected] to discuss how REACH authorisation requirements affect your business.
