If you are part of a joint application, follow the steps below. If you are not part of a joint application, just skip this step and go directly to point 3.
A detailed description of these steps is available in the relevant Manual.
Submit your application via REACH-IT
It is recommended to send your application during the first days of the submission windows to reduce the risk of missing a specific period's deadline due to failing the business rules check.
Follow the instructions of the manual. For joint applications, this has to be done by the submitting applicant.
Pay the invoice by the date mentioned in the invoice
Business rules check, latest application date and invoice
After these checks have been performed ECHA will calculate the authorisation application fee and send the invoice. To benefit from the transitional arrangements of Article 58(1)(c)(ii) of REACH, the applicants should submit their applications to ECHA sufficiently in advance of the latest application date so that they can re-submit their application still before the latest application date in case the 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.
