The authorisation process aims to ensure that substances of very high concern (SVHCs) are progressively replaced by less dangerous substances or technologies where feasible alternatives exist.

Substances that have been identified as SVHCs and included in the Authorisation List (Annex 14) cannot be used or placed on the market after a specified date, unless the use has been authorised or is exempt from authorisation.

In accordance with Article 58(3) of UK REACH, HSE is required to recommend priority substances for inclusion in this list from the UK candidate list of substances of very high concern (SVHCs).
