Third recommendation for inclusion in the authorisation list
The REACH Regulation requires that ECHA recommends from the "Candidate List" priority substances for inclusion in Annex XIV of REACH (the "Authorisation List") and for these substances proposes Annex XIV entries (i.e. transitional arrangements and, where relevant, exemptions and review periods) to the European Commission, taking into account the opinion of the Member State Committee. The European Commission finally decides, by "committee procedure" (with scrutiny), which substances will be included in Annex XIV and with which entries.
REACH requires ECHA to make a recommendation at least every second year.
ECHA's Annex XIV Recommendations:
In addition to its recommendations, ECHA provides the European Commission with several background documents which give more details and justifications regarding the recommendation and, where relevant, the proposals for the Annex XIV entries:
