Applicants can provide information which should not be made public in the "complete versions" of the assessment reports (Chemical Safety Report, Analysis of Alternatives, Substitution Plan, Socio-Economic Analysis). Formats and instructions are available under the "Preparing Applications for authorisation" page (http://echa.europa.eu/applying-for-authorisation/preparing-applications-for-authorisation).
Applicants need to make "public versions" of these "complete versions". In "public versions" the applicants need to blank out confidential business information. The "public versions" will be published on ECHA's website during public consultation on alternatives. Applicants need to provide solid justifications as to why the information which has been blanked out should not be made public.
