5 Annual Reporting Every February, the ECHA issues an annual Evaluation Report via its web site. This presents some statistical details of progress, useful reference information on common issues and findings from the evaluation processes conducted in the year to date. 4 11 Authorisation and Restriction This section explains these processes within REACH; both authorisation and restriction are revisited and discussed in more depth in relation to additional supporting analysis including socio-economic analysis (SEA) in Chapters 13 and 14 of this book.

For these substances, an application can be granted so long as adequate control is demonstrated. If suitable alternatives are available, then a substitution plan must be presented. The application for authorisation must include a chemical safety report (unless one has already been submitted to ECHA in a registration dossier) and an analysis of alternatives, in addition it may include a socio-economic analysis (although in practice this must be included because it will be very difficult to present the socio-economic arguments to support the benefits outweighing the risk without such an analysis).

Need for further information and/or testing. 2. At present no need for further information and/or testing and no need for risk reduction measures. 3. Need for limiting the risk. While the system for assessing new substances was generally regarded to work well and efficiently, the system for existing substances was slow (albeit thorough) and came under increasing criticism. This was both from industry, who wanted to show that their substances were risk assessed as safe, and pressure groups, who wanted to see the existing substances assessed and risky uses banned.
