Statistiche sugli utilizzatori a valle provvisti di autorizzazioni rilasciate

Le domande di autorizzazione possono riguardare gli usi di una determinata sostanza da parte del richiedente, usi più a valle nella catena di approvvigionamento o entrambi.

Gli utilizzatori a valle coperti da un’autorizzazione concessa a un attore a monte della loro catena di approvvigionamento devono notificare all’ECHA il proprio uso. Questo requisito si basa sull’articolo 66 del regolamento REACH.

L’ECHA tiene un registro delle notifiche degli utilizzatori a valle e trasmette le informazioni alle autorità competenti degli Stati membri.

Il grafico seguente fornisce una panoramica di tutte le notifiche degli utilizzatori a valle ricevute finora. A fini di completezza, per le sostanze in questione sono presentate anche le autorizzazioni concesse. L’ECHA aggiornerà le informazioni su base trimestrale.

Ulteriori dettagli sulla distribuzione geografica degli usi sono disponibili alla voce «Mappe e grafici».

Le informazioni raccolte a seguito delle singole notifiche sono presentate nel «registro delle notifiche».

Le informazioni fornite si basano sulle notifiche ricevute dagli utenti. Pertanto, possono esservi inesattezze. Per maggiori informazioni si prega di consultare l’avviso legale dell’ECHA.

Contesto

Le autorizzazioni all’uso di sostanze estremamente preoccupanti possono essere concesse se il richiedente è in grado di dimostrare che il rischio derivante dall’uso della sostanza è adeguatamente controllato o che i vantaggi socio-economici prevalgono sui rischi e non esistono alternative adeguate. Tutte le autorizzazioni sono soggette a un periodo di revisione di durata limitata. La procedura di autorizzazione mira a garantire che le sostanze estremamente preoccupanti siano progressivamente sostituite da sostanze o tecnologie meno pericolose, qualora siano disponibili alternative tecnicamente ed economicamente praticabili.

Includes only substances for which there are upstream authorisations, i.e. authorisations applied for by the manufacturers and importers of chemicals covering their downstream uses and sometimes their own use. For information on all received applications for substances on the Authorisation List, see ‘Statistics on received applications’.

AH = authorisation holders, DU = downstream users.

*) These are uses for which companies have an authorisation themselves. They also include authorisations held by companies whose applications covered downstream uses, as the same uses are permitted to also take place at the authorisation holders’ sites. However, it is possible that in practice the authorisation holders do not themselves use the substance.

**) All downstream uses of 1,2-Dichloroethane have ceased with the exit of the UK from the European Union.

***) All authorisations for HBCDD expired on 21 August 2017.

The number of downstream user notifications is counted as follows:

  • Each use per site is counted as a separate notification, and the total number of active notifications (uses) is reported. So, if there are four uses of a substance at one site, and three (same or different) uses at another site, this is counted as seven notifications.
  • If the same use is notified under different authorisation numbers, it is counted only once. Two uses for the same substance are considered to be the same if the use name/titles are exactly the same. As an example, use 2 of the “CTAC” decision and use 2 of the REACHLaw decision are considered to be the same because they have the exact same name/title.
  • If ECHA subsequently receives an update of a notification showing that the substance is no longer used at a site (ceased or substituted use), the number of uses at that site will be deducted from the current total number of notifications.
  • Uses for which the authorisation’s review period has expired and no review report has been submitted are deducted from the counts (this also applies to the uses of authorisation holders).

 

Public data on downstream user notifications

This document contains all public information from downstream user notifications. It is organised in four tabs and contains data for all substances for which upstream authorisations have been granted. We hope this will help our stakeholders gain better insights on the data. We plan to release more data in the future.

The first tab “Notified uses” contains all public information submitted by downstream users. Users can flag some information as confidential.

The second tab “Authorised uses” contains all the data on authorisations that have been granted by the Commission (ref. https://ec.europa.eu/docsroom/documents/45356). Downstream users can voluntarily notify how many workers are exposed to the substance.

The third tab “Uses per country” provides a breakdown of all authorised uses and uses notified by downstream users in the EU.

In the fourth tab “Usage over time” there is a collection of charts that display the number of uses for which an authorisation has been granted and the number of uses notified by downstream users. Only substances for which upstream authorisations have been granted are included.
