Entry 58 of Annex XVII to REACH - Ammonium Nitrate

Can the downstream users acquire ammonium nitrate in order to produce mixtures containing more than 16% of nitrogen in relation to ammonium nitrate for their industrial or professional activities according to paragraph 2 of Entry 58 of Annex XVII?

The restriction is not applicable to downstream users who use ammonium nitrate for their industrial or professional activities in order to transform it into other substances for different purposes. Therefore, for example the use of ammonium nitrate to produce nitrous oxide for use in the production of pressurised foods or for use as anaesthetics is not restricted.
