The Chemicals Regulation Division (CRD) makes digitally signed approvals available to applicants and other interested parties through a secure web site. Authorisation holders may choose to receive their authorisation using this system. There is no additional charge for this service.

Document Format

All documents are in Microsoft Word97 format and are digitally signed. The use of a digital signature ensures the legal validity of the document.

If you do not have Microsoft Word97, you can use the free Word Viewer (approx. 3.8MB download) from the Microsoft site.

The Applicant Guide: How Will My Application Be Processed gives instructions on how to submit applications for authorisation electronically.

How the Process Works

The public area of the site allows any user to view and download public domain documents. To get a better impression of how the new process works, you can look at the publicly available authorisations.

All adjuvant authorisations are also downloadable.

Download your Company's Authorisation Letters

If you wish to download your company authorisation letters using this service, you need to contact CRD to obtain an identifier and password.

Existing Authorisation Holders must provide a letter from a registration manager known to CRD on company headed paper quoting the COP number of a recently authorised application or one in progress. The letter should include the names of other company employees requiring access.

The letter should be addressed to:

Rachel Brown
Chemicals Regulation Division
Mallard House
Kings Pool
Y01 7PX

Acceptance of the first application from a company new to CRD will prompt the issue of a password and identifier to the applicant.
