Workshop on analysing alternatives and socio-economic impacts in authorisation applications

2-3 October 2012 | ECHA, Helsinki

This workshop addressed the practical aspects of how to analyse alternative substances and how to carry out socio-economic analysis when applying for an authorisation for the placing on the market or the use of a substance on the Authorisation List. The connections between these two types of analysis was also be explored.

The workshop discussions were based partly on practical examples, covering the following topics relevant for the preparation of an application for an authorisation:

  • Reaching a decision to apply
  • Getting organised for an application
  • Scoping and drafting of Analysis of Alternatives
  • Scoping and drafting of Socio-Economic Analysis
In total 30 industry experts took part in the workshop. ECHA is planning to hold similar events in 2013.
